Dorit Brauer studied painting and fine arts at the Avni Art Institute in Tel Aviv – Jaffo, Israel, from 1989 – 1993.
In 1997 the Department of Culture & Art of the Tel Aviv – Jaffo municipality in Israel featured Brauer’s A Passion of Color exhibition.
She considers the creation of art a sacred ritual. Her paintings have been shown in solo and group exhibitions in Israel, Germany and the US.
She is the author of the award-winning book Girls Don’t Ride Motorbikes – A Spiritual Adventure Into Life’s Labyrinth chronicling her modern day pilgrimage in which she embarks onto a 7,430-mile solo motorcycle adventure across the US. On her journey, Dorit recounts poetic life stories spanning her youth on a dairy farm in Germany, a 10-week solo-backpacking trip in Brazil, the turmoil of living in Tel Aviv, to her most recent chronicles in the United States.
As Dorit travels cross-country from labyrinth to labyrinth, these stories are woven together intricately to provide insights allowing the reader to reflect on their own spiritual journey.
British author Sig Lonegren, says Girls Don’t Ride Motorbikes – A Spiritual Adventure Into Life’s Labyrinth feels like a gentle overview of alternative thinking wrapped in a “Travels with Charley” (Steinbeck) package.
Girls Don’t Ride Motorbikes – A Spiritual Adventure Into Life’s Labyrinth has been praised as “Life-changing” and “The best book you’ll ever read.”
