Born and raised on a kibbutz in Israel, Ofra has always been surrounded and inspired by nature. After moving to Canada in 1973, she enrolled at Sheridan College School of Design, graduating with honours in 1977. A career as a full time artist began as Ofra exhibited at numerous art shows and galleries.
Her paintings represent an appreciation for the beauty of nature around Georgian Bay and the Beaver Valley, where she resides. Painting on silk using dyes and resist is challenging and rewarding at the same time.
For the past few years, a shift to larger oil paintings has taken place, allowing for a new direction of creativity and expression.
Ofra’s work can be viewed at galleries, her own studio/show room in Kimberley, Ontario, or her website.
