With an MFA in Painting and an MA in Contemporary Art History, artist Hadass Mor Gerson has built The Painted Ketubah not only on knowledge and skill, but tradition. Starting through word of mouth, Hadass wanted to create ketubahs that not only contained traditional elements, but were complimentary of each individual couple’s modern style.
What stuck out to Noah and I was the design and user-friendly feel of The Painted Ketubah website. It was modern, but not confusing; and simple, with just enough information. She displays the majority of her ketubot on her homepage with links to photos of her painted pieces and Etsy. Time and time again it seems that Ketubah artists forget the most important part of their website — ordering and payment information. However Hadass not only has a “How to Order Page”, but also a digital download form!
The Painted Ketubah offers Editioned Giclee Prints for those looking for something a little more price-friendly, or Customized hand-painted watercolor designs. Among the prints Hadass sells, although gorgeous, have little options. However Noah and I both fell in love with her custom works — it’s not often that you find many ketubah artists that hand paint their pieces. Among the handcraft ketubah artists that are out there, we both agreed that Hadass definitely creates some of the most unique pieces we have ever seen. For those looking for a ketubah with a completely personal touch (and love watercolors!), definitely check out Hadass’ website!
