Debbie Katz – artist

Hebrew Designs began as a quest for fun, original and creative Jewish Art.    Wanting to fill my home with whimsical and fun, yet meaningful Judaica, I searched all over but found very little that satisfied me.  Thus as a stay-at-home mom in Herndon, VA with three young children, I began to design my own creations to decorate my home.     

All hand painted original designs are whimsical interpretations of common Hebrew and Yiddish expressions.  Some designs are in ink; others are in acrylic.  Most expressions can be custom designed on any size canvas.  The stylish one-of-a-kind metal designs and beadwork that adorn each piece are all unique.  The different wires and metals are twisted to form unique, exciting and eye-catching design.  High quality Balinese silver beads, glass beads, semi-precious stones, Jewish themed beads, and polymer clay beads are all used.  Each piece of art is meticulously handcrafted.


I work with clients to create original work on a commission basis for private collections, as well as for interior decorators throughout the United States.   Commissions are gladly accepted, including baby names, last names, first names, and special sayings. 

My work has been featured in numerous shows in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area and I also sell via my website.
