Bobbi Hirschkoff

Bobbi Hirschkoff is a California native and has been an Encinitas, California resident for forty-five years. Her interest in art and gardening started as a child digging rivers and waterfalls throughout her mother’s fruit orchard. Being a child of the 50’s and Sputnik era meant being guided towards math and science. Ms. Hirschkoff was a middle school science teacher for 32 years.  During her teaching career her active pursuit of her art was limited to spring and summer breaks.  During these times, she created many stained glass windows and other works of art. Retiring from teaching in 2001 Ms. Hirschkoff now had the time to pursue her art interest full time.  She has done painting in both oil and acrylic with pieces tending towards large and abstract. Eight years ago, she began jewelry design and metalsmithing. Her interest also includes fused art glass, doing large freestanding glass art, platters and also incorporating fused glass into her jewelry designs. As a world traveler, Ms Hirsckoff,  is always looking for ethnic beads and found objects that are unique and can be incorporated into her art.
