Elizabeth Jorn was born in Penang, Malaysia spent her childhood in Singapore and didn’t move to her parents’s native Ireland until she was a teenager. After graduating from art school she set about travelling, answering the call of her spiritual home, Asia.
She met her Danish partner in life and in art, Jorn Bertram, in the Philipines. Sharing similar aesthetic ideas they worked together as artists for many years until Jorn passed away in 2008. Elizabeth continues to create new Elizabeth Jorn sculptures in her studio in the Thai seaside town of Hua Hin.
Elizabeth Jorn works in plaster, wax or clay and then casts the finished piece in bronze. The sculptures are then coloured with a patina or gilded. Her unique bronze sculptures can be found in private collections around the world
