Who is Edna?

Edna is a sculptress and a painter who specializes in sculptures both for the home and commercial establishments. She has designed awards for various community organizations as well as for many synagogues. Functional art has led her to design candlesticks, furniture, mural screens and outdoor sculptures in both modern and judaica designs.

Edna expresses her vision through the creation of unique objects which combine art and function and which most recently include exciting designs in silver and gold. Each piece is signed and of limited edition.

Many of Edna's outstanding commissions are in private collections throughout Canada and the United States.
