Elizabeth is from Odessa, Ukraine. Thirty years ago Elizabeth moved to Melbourne with her husband and her three children from what was formerly the USSR. Her husband is Jewish and the Jewish Welfare Organisation helped them to move to Australia.
At Sisterworks, Elizabeth makes dolls and toys: Graduation Bears; Humpty Dumpty Dolls; Scottish Men and Scarecrows. Elizabeth also helps women in the markets. She is great with customers and understands their needs.
The money she has earned through making and selling these dolls has allowed her to travel the world over and over again.
When asked if she likes it here (Australia): “Most Australians don’t understand how lucky they are to live in such a beautiful country. They just don’t understand”.
