A self-described “Jewish Culture Worker,” Susan Leviton expresses her love for, and skill in, the lettering arts by translating Yiddish and Hebrew text into works of art.

The ancient craft of papercutting, universally egalitarian in that it requires only paper and a tool to cut it, in Susan’s hands connects to Jewish roots of expression. Her calligraphic works incorporate delicate images from nature, bold expressions of poetry from another century, and exuberant 21st Century statements that connect to historic letter forms.
