Adam Rhine has been creating ornate, highly detailed Judaic watercolor paintings since 1999. His style is heavily influenced by medieval illuminated manuscripts, and he combines that inspiration with modern palettes and aesthetics.

Born in Chicago in 1970, Rhine was an incessant doodler and cartoonist. At age eleven, he decided to pursue art. He graduated with a BFA in commercial illustration from Northern Illinois University at age 22, and a jury awarded him the opportunity for a one-man show of abstract paintings during his senior year. He married Karen, a classmate and fellow illustrator, soon after graduation.

In his professional life, he has animated educational videos, coordinated the 2-D/3-D animation department for a video game company, and executed web design and e-learning development for major corporations.

Rhine has been interviewed by the Hallmark Channel and the Chicago Tribune to discuss his artwork and inspirations. His designs have also been featured on the covers of the Texas Jewish Post, Kashrus Magazine, Chadashot Magazine, and Jewish Exponent.

More than 30 of Rhine’s beautifully illustrated ketubot (Jewish wedding contracts) are featured at www.ketubah.com, the largest manufacturer of personalized artistic ketubot in North America.

Rhine’s hardcover art book, Hebrew Illuminations, is a collection of all 22 Hebrew illuminated letters as well as 22 of his most well-known Magen David paintings. It also includes art from his sketchbook and text descriptions of the meaning behind each design. His artwork illustrates the covers and chapters in the three-book educational series Celebrating the Jewish Year by Paul Steinberg. Continue reading

The Jewish holiday calendar is a lunar calendar, which means that the theme of light and dark can play out in the timing of the moon as well as the sun. Hanukkah always begins on the 26th of Kislev, three days before the new moon closest to the full moon that is closest to the Winter Solstice—so, at the darkest time of the moon and at the darkest time of the sun.
