GHETTA HIRSCH grew up in Morocco and was deeply influenced by her surroundings, both at home and beyond. Her father’s architectural drawings, her mother’s copious fabric collection, and the light and shapes evoked by the North African setting all had a part in developing her aesthetic. Ghetta studied literature and education in France and the U.K., and eventually settled in Washington, D.C., where her professional life as a teacher, and later as a headmistress, kept her fully engaged. Upon retiring to the Berkshires in 2008, she was able to finally devote her full creative energies to an early passion, painting. Ghetta is a represented artist at Three Stones Gallery.
