We are Elena & Genu, a wife and husband team honoring the Christian and Jewish traditions through a mutual passion for art making. We want to thank everyone who put their faith in our artistic heart and hands. It is with your support our journey into customized artwork was made possible, leading to the incredible joy of making art together as a profession.
All of our ketubot, blessings and family trees start as a hand drawing or painting, and they will continue to do so as we love the vibrations of the human touch that translate emotions and stands out no matter what the end medium is. We continue to use museum quality materials for our artwork and for all that is born from it.
We took small steps in giving our paintings a niche purpose, each one specially requested by a new couple. And it all grew organically as we came to understand that capturing life’s precious moments in art helps us make sense of our presence and connects us to the past, present and future, and to beautiful new people.
