Really beautiful work of art. Artist was great to work with and adjusted the design to suit our own text. This will be a lovely family heirloom and we're so excited to present it on our big day!
It started with Heidi
Before I was a painter I was a lot of other things. A teacher. A waitress. A grant writer. A backpacker. A student. A marketer. A copywriter. A mommy.
In 2008 my dear friend Heidi asked if I would create her ketubah, a traditional Jewish marriage certificate. She had attended the birth of my first son so this was our trade. I had made my own ketubah and a few others for family but it had been a while. But I found that the project, instead of depleting an already tired full-time working mama, it filled me up. It actually gave me energy.
So I took a creative life coaching course with a wonderful coach name Laura Geduldig in Oakland, California and through that experience I created a plan for myself to grow my portfolio, spread the word, quit my day job and start my business.
In the five years since I began this experiment my work has been included in galleries and private collections throughout the United States and in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Italy, Mexico, Israel, Sweden, Hong Kong and Singapore including the Lucille Packard Children's Hospital of Palo Alto which hosts the entire collection of my watercolor animal illustrations. I currently have licensing agreements with Hallmark and Calypso Cards and in addition to ETSY, I sell online at Gallery Judaica, Rosenberry Rooms and Kids-Art.com, plus several Judaica shops in California including The Skirball Museum in LA, Dayenu in San Francisco and Afikomen in Berkeley.
In 2011 my husband and I moved with our three kids to a lovely hamlet in the hills outside of Jerusalem. I chronicle life here and all it entails - parenting, cultural differences, the physical beauty of this place, our family adventures, my creative journey - on my blog (see link to the right).
Thanks for stopping by!

A quick word about quality: When you purchase a print you'll receive an archival, fade-resistant high quality piece of art printed on museum etching paper that has the look and feel of actual watercolor paper (the thick and rubbly stuff). All prints come signed by the artist. (me!)
