Edna Hibel was born in 1917 in Boston, Massachusetts. Her parents, Abraham and Lena Hibel raised her in the Boston area and educated at Brookline High School where she met her future husband, Theodore Plotkin.
When she was nine years old she began to paint. During the summers she learned watercolor at the shore where her family vacationed in Maine and Hull, Massachusetts. Hibel studied at the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts, from 1935-39, receiving a Sturtevant Traveling Fellowship to Mexico. In Boston, in 1966, she began lithography, continuing in 1970 in Zurich, where she still works every year. Today from her home and studio in Riviera Beach, Florida, she continues to paint in oil and watercolor and also hand enhances her original stone lithographs, serigraphs and giclee with pastels, oil paint, gold leaf, pencil, ink, conte crayon and charcoal.
