Russian burn Elisheva Galperin made Aliya in 1997. After attending the Bezalel school of Arts and graduating visual communication studies Elisheva worked for several years as a graphic designer and illustrated books for the Jewish Agency, Israel Antiquities Authority and other customers.
While doing research several years ago she was exposed to a large collection of Ketubas, Jewish marriage contracts, and was entranced by the cultural and visual richness of this media. Elisheva felt drawn to the Judaic world of art and felt she wanted to contribute to its cultural beauty. Among other sources like the views and colors of Israel, her inspiration comes from Biblical texts and many of the characters in her art are based on biblical figures.
