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).

This little sea shell is all hand painted with professional grade acrylic paints in earth tones and blues. It has a tribal look to it with Aztec inspired patterns. I loved working in harmony with the shells natural markings as I painted, almost as if the shell itself was telling me where to place my brush. The pendant is strung on soft, cognac leather cord with a simple antiqued brass lobster clasp in the back. As each shell and each little painting is different, this necklace is one of a kind. Shell pendant measures approximately 1.25 inches (3.2 cm) long. Leather cord measures 16 inches. Please see nickel in the fourth photo for visual size reference.

Described as a “genius” and a “leading light” of 20th-century British art by her peers, Winifred Knights died in relative obscurity at the age of 47. Even attendees at the Tate Britain’s recent Fighting History exhibition, which offered visitors a chance to see her much-admired painting The Deluge, thought incorrectly that the work was by Stanley Spencer.
