This ketubah features an elaborate papercut that depicts seven pairs of animals plus landscape features inspired by songs by the Dave Matthews Band. A Japanese maple to the left stretches over the scene, while a river with stones next to it runs into the distance; in the background, hills and another tree. The animal pairs (can you find them?): monkeys, big-eyed fish, little (red) birds, ants, alligators, butterflies, and lady bugs.
Lettering running along the horizon into the hills reads: "No matter how far we may roam, it's by your side I make my home."
The colors are bright and rainbowish! Lettering in white.
All my ketubahs and wedding certificates are custom made. I do the background watercolor (ink wash) painting, the papercut design and cutting, and the calligraphy myself. I can work with any text you give me, in any language, and I love to include images and symbols that are special to you in the papercut or calligraphic design. I will work with you to develop your dream ketubah or wedding certificate. Also, if you happen to be in the NYC area, I would be happy to meet with you to show you some examples of my work.
My ketubahs and wedding certificates are not prints: they are actual original paintings onto which I write, in calligraphy, your text. This is different from pre-printed ketubahs and certificates you see that are "personalized" simply by adding your names, place, dates into a blank slot.
Please convo me if you are interested in custom artwork of this kind. You can see other samples of my work on my website (http://www.jerise.com).
