“Art has always interested me, since I was old enough to hold a pencil, and over the years I have honed and perfected my ability to draw and paint, constantly looking for ways to improve my standards. I spent many years as a professional model maker, and the diversity of skills needed, was the perfect grounds for my career as a Judaica artist. I studied the sacred art of safrut (scribe) and received semichah (rabbinical ordination) on the laws of safrut from the Vaad Mishmeret HaStam a globally recognized certification in safrut. At around the same time, I was introduced to the world of Judaica, in particular fine art on parchment. This opened up a whole new world of artistic creativity for me, and the challenge of developing new skills, including painting on parchment, gilding and paper-cuts, was a most rewarding one. Art is a constant learning curve; I am my own biggest critique, and I strive to achieve perfection in all my art. My primary goal is that every piece that comes out of my studio is a true masterpiece,”. - Roni Weiss
