Scrib­al Art is made up of na­tive Aus­tralian artist Nik­ki Green. With a ground­ed back­ground in He­brew and Jew­ish ed­u­ca­tion com­bined with a de­gree in Fine Arts, Nik­ki is re­al­ly the to­tal pack­age when cre­at­ing beau­ti­ful ke­tubot.

Nikki’s web­site, much like her ke­tubot had a very bo­hemi­an-mo­roc­can feel to it, and we def­i­nite­ly loved it! It was al­so re­al­ly user friend­ly and had a few dif­fer­ent unique fea­tures that re­al­ly set her web­site apart. Her or­der form was pret­ty ba­sic and straight for­ward, which can be ben­e­fi­cial at times. How­ev­er when Noah and I were shop­ping for our ke­tubah, we were al­ways con­fused by the lack of di­rec­tion and guid­ance on al­most all ke­tubot web­sites. Her web­site al­so does­n’t list her prices, but she does have an et­sy that lists some of her col­lec­tion.

Most of Nikki’s in­spi­ra­tion when cre­at­ing her ke­tubot comes from east­ern style ar­chi­tec­ture and the de­tailed ori­en­ta­tion, and it has def­i­nite­ly trans­lat­ed well. She uti­lizes a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent medi­ums to cre­ate her art work — from parch­ment and wa­ter­col­or pa­per to gold, cop­per and even sil­ver leaf dec­o­ra­tions, all of her ma­te­ri­als are used keep­ing archival pur­pos­es in mind. One fea­ture we thought was in­ter­est­ing on her page was her in­ter­ac­tive DIY tool which you can use to de­sign your own ke­tubah. The tool al­lows you to choose your own tem­plate, back­ground and bor­der. Not be­ing very artis­tic my­self, I don’t think I would want to opt for this choice.

Scrib­al Art ke­tubot are ide­al for those who want the tra­di­tion­al el­e­ments of a ke­tubah, but with a more bo­hemi­an de­sign. As we have said be­fore, Nikki’s back­ground and ob­vi­ous skill set make for a great com­bi­na­tion and even bet­ter ke­tubot.
