Another example of my custom work! This ketubah features a papercut picturing a cherry tree rising from below; below, to the left, the roots stretch out and encompass the couples monogram; above in the branches, three birds are visible. The background is deep purple shading into deep rose and pink. 18×24. ************ 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 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).

Ive got a deep, deep obsession with encaustic cement tiles. The eco-friendly tiles, which date back to the 12th century, are individually formed in a hand forged metal frame and deposited with pigmented cement slurries. The frame is removed and additional layers of cement are added and

Join us in the California desert for a cacti-filled photo tour of Palm Springss minimalist beauty, shot by PS local Caroline Sleeper, an artist, graphic designer, and photographer who returned back to the Southern California desert after sojourns in Washington and Arizona. Here, were sharing some Palm Springs snapshots from her favorite spots + daily observations, as well as her local picks for how to make the most of a trip to the area. How long have you been in Palm Springs — can you share more about what draws you to living + working there? I grew up in the Palm Springs area. As someone who grew up here I have a tendency to refer to the area as The Desert, as do most locals. I now split my time between here and LA. I love all the different types of nostalgia the desert holds for me: theres the childhood memories and the deep feeling of comfort and home. There is also the endearing 70s old Hollywood nostalgia that is so inescapable here. From the Mid-century influence to the colors of the desert, the heat, and the pace…its all so inspiring and plays into my work often. There are a lot of iconic Palm Springs haunts and visual themes…what are some of your favorite spots to photograph in the area? I love Joshua Tree. Ive been there so many times and every time I feel like Im on Mars. I also love all of the hidden retro neighborhoods that instantly transport you to another time. I actually studied interior design in college and I think thats where my love for the quaint little Palm Springs neighborhoods really took off. The architecture is just so interesting and creative. What are some of your favorite local spots — for eating and drinking? – Workshop is just an absolute must. Order the Brussels sprouts and any of the cocktails (especially the Matador). – Just down the street from there is Birba, the outdoor patio is fantastic. – Appetito Deli is also delicious, my go-to order is the eggplant parmigiana sliders. – For brunch I recommend Cheekys…you need to go if not for any other reason then the fact that they have a bacon flight for $5. – If the Cheekys line is too long, check out Jakes, only a few doors down. I highly suggest the Eggs Benedict or Turkey BLT, paired with a seat on the patio, and a horseradish Bloody Mary. …for art, culture? – All of the hotels out here are pretty cool. The vacation vibes are real, even for the locals. I also love the Palm Springs Art Museum. There are so many different events going on all the time. – Moorten Botanical Garden is magical cacti wonderland. I wish it was my backyard. The original owner, Clark, has been in Palm Springs for over 50 years and he and his wife built the place from the ground up. …for soaking up the surroundings? Honestly, I think the architecture in PS is art in and of itself so just drive around and take it all in. If you have the time to drive up to Joshua Tree there is a place called Pappy & Harriets in Pioneertown thats a must. Im not going to even try to explain! You will just have to see it for yourself. …for experiencing architecture or any other notable landmarks? – One of my favorite places to take any desert visitors is a house on Sierra Way — a house thats so good, it has its own hashtag: ThatPinkDoor.- – The windmills are also quite a site. My favorite place to pull over and view them is on the side of the road on N. Indian Canyon Dr. – The Palm Springs Welcome Center, which used to be the Tramway Gas Station, is also really cool. Say were planning a road trip through the California desert — what are some of our must-visit spots…especially anything more under the radar or new-to-you places? If youre driving in from LA…first stop by the Cabezon Dinosaurs on your way into town. As you drive through Uptown Palm Springs on the way to the Ace Hotel, stop at Ernest Coffee (and get the dirty chai). Walk into a few furniture stores. When you get to Ace, look around (its beautiful!) then take a drive through the neighborhood behind the hotel. Grab dinner at Workshop Kitchen+Bar, go to Bar and play some corn hole. The next day, get up early, stop by Moorten Botanical Gardens (buy a baby cactus). Drive to Joshua Tree and be sure to stay until sunset. Afterward, have dinner at Pappy and Harriets. The next day, have brunch at Jakes, stop by the Parker Palm Springs, then drive toward the East Valley. Spend the afternoon at Salvation Mountain, check out the deserted landmark that is the Salton Sea…and if you have time drive out to the Imperial Sand Dunes! Shop Head West

In this small and modern apartment, the bedroom has a deep teal and wood accent wall providing the perfect backdrop for the artwork and bed, while black framed glass walls separate the bedroom from the living and dining area and allow the light from the windows to travel throughout the small apartment. At night, blinds and curtains can be drawn to provide privacy.
