Anita Birkenfeld - Biography
I was born in 1955 in Wroclaw, Poland and immigrated with my family to Israel when I was two years old.
I am married to Rony and we have three sons and five adorable grandchildren.
In 2004 we lost our only daughter, Lital, who passed away from cancer at the age of only nineteen.
This most tragic and heartbreaking event transformed our life.
We relocated to a quieter rural residence and I became strongly dedicated to my creation, maybe as an outlet and some kind of a remedy to the tremendous pain of losing our daughter.
After few years I have set up my studio at home where I can work surrounded by the people and things that I love most.
My sculptures are created either in clay or by casting molds (bronze, polymer and transparent epoxy). In some of my works I also add other metals such as iron and brass to the casting.
I believe that my works clearly express my true love for life and people as well as my passion for style, movement and pure aesthetics.
