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.
Elena Berlo is an art teacher and author in the gifted and talented learning system created by Renzulli, blending the family life with her endeavor in fine arts. With a bachelors in Architecture from the University of Bucharest, she continued her artistic education at the Fashion Institute of Technology of NYC with a certificate as color specialist, and practiced architecture in well established NYC firms.

Happy Couples & Reviews
Elena designed a custom watercolor painting circling our wedding vows as a one year anniversary gift for my husband. It is absolutely stunning, we love it so much, and is a treasure we will keep in our family forever. It was a pleasure working with her, from seeing sketches and confirming design specs, to receiving the piece earlier than expected. Thank you so much for such a beautiful keepsake!
Received so many compliments on my beautiful Ketubah! I could not recommend this shop enough. Elena was wonderful to work with, and made sure that the Ketubah was exactly what I wanted.
Genu was so patient and very kind even after I sent a million emails back and forth changing things before approving the final copy. Looks beautiful!
Our Ketubah is BEAUTIFUL. The sellers are lovely and they were extremely accommodating to adjustments and details. The Ketubah shipped on time and was the talk of our wedding! Really wonderful sellers. So happy to have their work hanging in our house forever.
I just wanted to let you know how stunning the Bat Mitzvah invitations turned out. I am getting feedback from everyone who received one on how beautiful they are. I know I loved them but didn't think people commented on invitations. They are just gorgeous.
Thank you so much for working with me.

We received the ketubah and album a few days ago and absolutely love it!! It is beyond perfect. We are so excited and so incredibly grateful. Thank you so so much.
Hi, I received the artwork today - much earlier than expected. It is gorgeous! The colors are so much more vibrant than the photo and the quality is superb. Thank you very much for your excellent creative work and customer service.
I'm very happy with my purchase! The ketubah arrived ahead of schedule and is beautiful. Genu answered all of my questions and worked with me to meet all of my needs. I'm so glad I chose to work with them. I couldn't be happier.
