Amalya Nini 

Fine Art Paper Cut Designs, Zur Hadassah, Israel
I work on parchment, and then print all my work on100% cotton paper acid free and finish them with 24k. gold leaf done by hand. My work was given to many honorable people around the world and my Ketubot to many happy couples. Prices for prints - $ 75 -$1200. Prices for originals begin $ 3000. I was born in Israel and studied art for 4 years in the art Academy in Bat Yam and enriched my knowledge by taking courses in NY, and by being impressed by the beauty of it. I'm in the field of Judaica and paper cut since 1981. I live in Zur Hadassah in the Jerusalem Hills, where all my inspirations come from. I work on parchment, and then print all my work on100% cotton paper acid free and finish them with 4k. gold leaf done by hand. My works were given to many honorable people around the world.
