Ellen Lefrak Prints
I was born in Yonkers, N.Y. and emmigrated to Israel in 1962. In recent years I have been dividing my time between Israel and Ireland. I have had over 28 one -woman shows in Israel, Ireland and the USA. I work mainly in Oils, silk screen and pastel and use photography and the computer for my work. In recent years I have specialized in the portrayal of jazz musicians, and more recently, Irish musicians, as I like to portray people while they are creating or otherwise occupied.
I studied for one year (1961-2) at the Tyler School of Fine Art in Philadelphia, Pa.1962-1969I studied Archaeology and Jewish history at the Hebrew Univ. in Jerusalem and recieved my BA. I studied at the Bezalel Academy of Arts in Jerusalem and received my BFA in Fine Arts in 1976, having specialized in printmaking. More recently I did a 5 months course in computer graphics. Later I did a course in community TV in Jerusalem.
