Here is a little bit about Dorit:
ABOUT ME
Art and creativity has always been an important part of my life. I am always looking for the creative way when I have an assignment to tackle.

During the years I tried my hands on clay, jewelry, quilting, doll making, graphic design, printmaking, collage and bookmaking. I love to combine many of these when I create my mixed media works of art.

I love scavenging for my materials in the flea markets and second hand stores. I find it much more creative and challenging to use existing items (aka “found objects”) and giving them a new life, not to mention the benefit of keeping the earth clean.

My inspiration comes from what I see in my everyday life: A piece of textured fabric, a picture in a magazine, my family, the city landscape and nature. All of those are put together in a very intuitive and spontaneous way into my mixed media art.

Dorit has published 2 books: “Printmaking+Mixed Media” and “Dorit Elisha – Mixed Media”

**Note**We provide sewing machine(s) if you need them…bring your own if you prefer.
