Hello, I’m Adriana Saipe.
I began designing for my shop “Ink with Intent” when I realized that the world needed more ketubahs and Quaker wedding certificates that were simple, contemporary, colorful, and inclusive of all types of couples.
It was during the summer of 2013, when I was planning my Quaker-Jewish interfaith wedding, that I began my hunt for the perfect ketubah. I absolutely loved the idea of participating in this ancient Jewish tradition and of having a beautiful rendering of our wedding promises hanging on our wall. But as I searched, no ketubah I found seemed to fit the quirky, interfaith celebration we were planning together.
Many designs featured symbols and places that didn’t speak to our interfaith family. Other designs were beautiful, but lacked the vibrant color and simplicity that I crave as an artist. And no designs seemed to speak to our shared experiences as a couple. Since I’m a professional artist, in the end we decided to simply create our own. And the design we landed on perfectly captured the time and place where we first fell in love. It’s hanging on my wall as we speak. And every so often, I’ll stop to reread it and relive all the emotions of the day we signed it together.
But once I had created one ketubah, I couldn’t stop there. I still had so many ideas about what love and partnership look like to a contemporary couple. And so every day I keep designing.
P.S. If you’re curious about my paintings, you can pop on over to my art website.
