My cousins are about to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary. Which means that 20 years ago, in advance of their wedding, I was working on their ketubah in my college dorm room.  I had designed a handful of wedding monograms for friends, but this challenge took my artwork to a whole new level.

Most of you know that I am primarily self taught in calligraphy and papercutting.  I am eternally grateful to my friend, Micha, who taught me what materials to use and how to write a ketubah.  I am also thankful to Dena for teaching me the lightbox method over ten years ago.

Little did I know that my cousin’s ketubah would one day lead to my full time business. I certainly had no idea what a papercut was or that I would become a papercut artist! Over the past 20 years, I have created hundreds of original ketubot for people all over the world. I feel so blessed to be able to do what I love each and every day and am truly grateful to everyone who has helped me get to this point.

To celebrate, I have been posting pictures on Facebook and Instagram of some of my favorite ketubot from the past 20 years.
