One of our most popular ketubahs, "A Lover's Embrace" by Micah Parker is a graphic, modern, minimalist design. Two trees with strong roots have grown intertwined together, in a lover's embrace, their delicate branches forming hearts in the trees' canopy. The ketubah text is divided in two on each side of the trees, with each language shaped to follow the artwork, and the text color compliments the colors in the design. The signature lines are artfully placed below the roots. Trees have a long tradition in ketubah design. Our artist had this to say: This design gave me the opportunity to combine my love of modern whimsicality with my passion for nature. When time allows, I love a good hike in the woods and greatly enjoy the intertwining sculpture of trees. I was fascinated on a recent hike to see a tree with branches that formed two loose hearts at the top, and as an artist that creates ketubot, I was struck by the intertwining symbolism of the tree of life and love, and couldn't wait to get back to my studio to bring the design to life.
In just a short period of time, Micah Parker has become recognized as a leading ketubah artist with fresh, stunning designs that are unlike any others on the market. His modern interpretation of this traditional art form is being welcomed by today's generation of brides and grooms around the world. One of his ketubah designs, Renaissance, is featured in the Associated American Jewish Museum's traveling exhibition of ketubot, and his work was chosen by a national search firm to be featured on the front cover of a 5760 Hebrew calendar. His artwork has also been featured in several publications and on television during TLC's A Wedding Story.

Micah is originally from Middletown, Ohio. There, he began his endeavors as an artist at the age of three. He moved with his family to Austin, Texas in the early 1980s, where his high school created a new art program to accommodate his desire to learn and the skill he exhibited with acrylics, colored pencils and pastels. As he completed his art education, he was eager to begin his career as an artist. However, at his parents' request, he entered the family manufacturing business. He worked there for 13 years, working his way up from installer to vice president.

After a long hiatus from the art world, he grew anxious to draw and paint again. He had also developed skills in the use of a new medium while working in his parents' business -- computer graphics. In his spare time, he began creating artwork on the computer. Although Micah was not satisfied with creating art on a part-time basis, he had no plans, at that point, to turn his endeavors into a business, particularly given the difficulties in leaving his family's firm. continue reading
