Luba Bar Menachem's
Luba Bar Menachem emigrated to Israel in 1971 from Sverdiovsk, in the Ural Mountains of Siberia.
In the 1980s, she took a course in Hebrew Calligraphy and graphic design. Thus began her involvement in Judaic art and papercutting.
To create her papercuts, Luba first draws her original design on paper or parchment and - then - cuts it out with a surgical knife or scalpel.
The pristine lasercuts reproduce the finest details of Luba’s work.
Luba is frequently commissioned to create unique Ketubot (Marriage Contracts), Megilot and illuminated scriptural quotes. She often enhances her papercuts with gouache, watercolors, gold paint and calligraphy.
