As a mixed media contemporary artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York I am inspired by the diversity that surrounds me. I have a background in Fine Art, Arts Education and Calligraphy and have been creating Judaica for twenty years in a variety of media.
In 2003 I started making original works of art for family and friends to mark significant lifecycle events and Ketubah Graphia was born. I am excited to be able to provide ketubahs to couples of all backgrounds—Jewish, same-sex, interfaith and secular. I work in collaboration with couples to provide them with their often first original artwork as a married couple.
Making ketubahs today motivates me to update tradition and bring a contemporary aesthetic to a traditional object. I hope to enrich the meaning of the ketubah and its connection to history in a way that enables transformation through meaningful artwork. I feel privileged to be working with couples at such a momentous time in their lives and am inspired by each love story that I encounter. I intend for the ketubah to be a one-of-a-kind heirloom and archival testament of a couple’s union and their future together.
I look forward to meeting you.
Aliza, you made our wedding document with such sensitive intent and attention to the detail of our union. Our ketubah inspires our commitment daily and its handwritten custom beauty serves to parallel the spirit of our love. We thank you.
