One of our most popular designs, "Grace" by Micah Parker is absolutely stunning. This ketubah is available as a papercut or a print. Over a softly textured background, a pure white ring encircles the ketubah text. The ring is delicately decorated with smaller concentric rings forming an intricate lace reminiscent of the bridal veil. The four corners are filled with a beautiful vine and leaf pattern. The ketubah is a beautiful representation of the wedding ring ceremony in which both partners exchange rings to symbolize their mutual respect of one another, the wholeness achieved through marriage, and their hope for an unbroken bond and lifetime commitment. The circular ketubah text is in a complimentary color inside the ring. Available as a papercut or a print. The papercut will have two layers - one with the intricate white ring and leafy border cutout and the other with the colored background and text. The print only option will have the ring and colored, text layer all printed in one.
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
