The Ben Gunn



Zarina Silverman is an artist and Los Angeles native. She has traveled throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, and has studied humanities, education, and the arts, receiving a degree from Otis College of Art and Design in 1996.

In 2001 Zarina left her job as a Middle School Special Ed teacher to focus on making art and raising a family. Around the same time, she became interested in bellydance and began taking classes, eventually performing at parties, showcases and festivals.

In 2007 Zarina felt the need to return to her roots as a visual artist and began working in ceramics and painting in oils. She currently directs a ceramics program at an elementary school.
