Mirka Mora: A life making art provides a unique insight into one of Melbourne's most beloved personalities. Revealing an unseen side of Mirka through both her materials and practice, this intimate portrait shares her complex and truly innovative techniques, which until now have not been studied.

Detailing the artist's breadth of practice, her idiosyncratic processes and blend of traditional methods and modern creativity, this book shows how Mirka's various modes of making art connected deep emotions, stories of displacement and loss with major movements of the twentieth century. From Holocaust survivor to Melbourne cultural icon, Mirka expressed the intensity of her personal life through artworks that embodied feminism, the craft movement as well as community art policies of the 1980s.

With privileged access to the artist and her studio, Sabine Cotte offers a new perspective on this extraordinary woman, illuminating Mirka's significance as one of Australia's most compelling, creative and prolific artists.
