After completing her military service, Hagar left her kibbutz in the Jordan valley to study photography for three years in Nottingham, England, before setting out as a Camera Press news photographer in Africa.
She studied art and design for two years in the Ecole des Arts Appliques and the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Paris. Back in Israel, she photographed portfolios for actors and models, designed furniture and decorated shops in Tel Aviv.
Hagar studied for four years in the Basis School of Sculpture in Israel.
Hagar works in mixed media, bronze, wood and found objects.
Her concept is: We hate plastic which is indestructible and will pollute our world for hundreds of years. We cannot get rid of the stuff. So if plastic lasts for ever, why not recycle used supermarket shopping bags to create a timeless work of art?
