Hebrew Paper-cuts & Design
Meet Jennifer Kaplan
I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. I work in a variety of mediums, including metal, clay, fiber, glass, acrylic, pencil, gouache, ink and paper. Inspired by Hebrew letter forms, sacred texts, and the concept of "Hiddur Mitzvah," literally, beautification of the commandments, I strive to create beauty and art out of ancient traditions, allowing the texts to come alive through calligraphy, color, papercuts and design.
I have spent many years studying Hebrew and Jewish texts, and continued my studies at the graduate level, focusing on ancient Semitic writing systems and language. Prior, I studied Art, Art History and Jewish and Islamic Studies at Washington University in St. Louis, and did my graduate work in Ancient Near Eastern Cultures at University of California, Los Angeles.
I currently live in Cleveland, Ohio with my husband Dave, daughters Jillian and Lydia, and our dog, Watson.
