Happy Birthday, Gustav...

I'll never forget the day I stood before Gustav Klimt's famous portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer at the Neue Galerie in NYC....Years ago I wrote about that moment  where I shared one of my Klimt Inspired paintings,  'All My Love'. His work has been a mainstay influence in my work for years ~ Often, direct inspiration for a painting and other times, quiet Klimt-esque elements that subtly find their way into my art. In honor of what would have been Klimt's 150th Birthday, I'm happy to post another special painting titled,  'Fulfillment', directly influenced by Klimt and which has become one of my best selling ketubah and print designs.   Happy Birthday, old man...I'm most grateful for your sweet inspiration ~  


We made the New York Times

"...this piece of paper, this beautiful piece of art, is the sign of our covenant.” ~Sally Austin

Christians Embrace a Jewish Wedding Tradition~ New York Times(click to read)

A sweet mention in the New York Times!! The article features Sally and Mark Austin, one of our wedding clients who wanted to incorporate the Jewish tradition of signing a Ketubah (A wedding certificate that combines beautiful artwork and wedding vows) into their wedding ceremony. We were thrilled to be able to recommend one of our couples to be interviewed for the New York Times article and even happier to see acknowledgment of this growing trend. Then again, our studio has been proudly creating ketubot for Jewish, Interfaith and Non Jewish couples for over 10 years ;) We wish the best to the Austin's and thank them, for their kind words about our art.
