Marcie and Herman's Super Modern Custom Ketubah

Celebrating 5 Years as a Full Time Artist

It’s that time of year. Flowers shyly peak out of new buds, trees don their green crowns, and the streets of Los Angeles smell intoxicatingly of Jasmine. For me, like for so many, spring is a time of renewed hope...

Bombs Falling on My Hometown

  Self Portrait in Soviet School Uniform, oil on canvas, 2003  Kiev is a beautiful city. That is what my grandmother tells me with tears in her eyes, every time it comes up. It is hilly and green, she says,...

A New Painting for Reichman University and a Trip Down Memory Lane for Me

Amy & Scott's Ketubah Expresses Their Love for Each Other and for Israel

Red White and New

Every story from my childhood has two different, and often opposite, versions when told by my parents. I have spent the last thirty years piecing them together, both in paintings and stories. That's why I was honored when a brilliant young...

How to Tie Your Own Tzitzit

When I decided I wanted to create my own line of tallitot, there was a big learning curve. One of the challenges was learning to tie on tzitzit. I have to confess -- it seemed really daunting. This is why I offer to tie them on for anyone who orders one of my tallitot. But that said, once you get the hang of it, tying tzitzit is actually really easy. Moreover, it is a mitzvah and can be a very meaningful experience! Here are 10 easy steps to help you tie your own tzitzit.

Guess Who Came To Do a Tallit Photoshoot With Me?

Ten years ago, when we packed up and moved to Houston not knowing even one person, I couldn't have imagined the amazing community I would find there. One of the luckiest things that ever happened to me was meeting Kristi right after landing...

Celebrating 4 Years as a Full Time Artist

Every year around this time I take a beat and think about what I have learned in the past year, where I am now, and where my business is heading.  I often think about my studio as my third child -- and this baby is not a toddler anymore! So where are we now?

Sneak Peak at the Upcoming Art Tallit Line!

I have dreamed of making a line of artistic Tallitot (Jewish Prayer Shawls) for almost as long as I have been painting ketubahs. As with my ketubah art, I love the idea of taking my contemporary artistic vision and "marrying" it with...

Allison and Andrew's Ketubah: A Marriage of Laughter and Love

There is nothing better than a couple with a sense of humor! I loved Allison and Andrew the moment I heard their completely unique and sentimental ketubah idea. Andrew, who is a veteran (thank you for your service, Andrew!) met Allison on Bumble....

Tim's Healing Journey

Another favorite project of this year is not a ketubah, but a truly one-of-a-kind painting that commemorated a meaningful journey. I met Tim what feels like a lifetime ago, when I lived in Israel and coordinated an art program for students...

Dahlya and Aaron: A 2020 Story 20 Years in the Making

How Will You Paint This Year?

My grandpa, Vilya, worked as an engineer in the Soviet Space Program, but he didn’t know how to fry an egg.  I found this out when I was five years old, and hungry. We were traveling on our own, without the women who fried our eggs and made our world go round.  A nuclear reactor had exploded about 100 kilometers from our home in Kiev, and my family was doing all they could to keep me safe from the fallout.

It's Time for New Art!

A full year in the making, the Intimate Moments Collection will feature colored pencil and graphite pieces on paper. A combination of figurative drawings and still life, the collection chronicles the many moments I have learned to notice and appreciate this year. 

After the Plague Comes the Renaissance

That is how, amid the chaos, I discovered that sometimes to do something big, you have to go small. 

I Didn't Get to Say Good Bye

I didn’t get to say goodbye to you, Dedulya. I didn’t get to see you for over a year. I had to watch your funeral on a screen from 2000 miles away.  You were the most wonderful grandfather with the...
