My name is Naomi Shiek (pronounced CHIC).
I create papercut ketubot for private clients in the Nouveau Judaica style.

What is a ketubah, you ask? A KETUBAH is a decorative marriage covenant used and exhibited in Jewish, non-denominational and non-traditional weddings and commitment ceremonies wherein the couple's vows to each other are declared.

bespoke | Tree ketubot (part 1)

I made quite a few custom papercuts with trees this year. Unfortunately I'm so flakey I forgot about them until I idly browsed my iphone photo album. This post features two such ketubot that are all about the tree.

Stephanie and Jon love animals, and so they wanted a big ol' Tree of Life with forest animals all around it and hiding in it, and well, it's not hard to get me to draw trees!

Kissing deer, frolicking monkeys and lounging fox, I wanted two of each. When I was drawing this ketubah I kept thinking of a classic of Israeli children's literature called Apartment for Rent, where each floor of a residential building is home to different animals who all have to get along. Except for the curious dog who's harassing the monkey, this bunch seems all to get along.

Lisa & Jason wanted a simple design - Oak Trees as their Chuppah, and nothing else. This ketubah is all about the tree trunks framing their wedding vows. Good thing I had very patient models outside willing to stand motionless for hours while I tried to get the bark texture just right
