Ketubah Artist: Dorit Jordan Dotan

I was born in 1961, and live in Haifa. I am a graphic designer working with hand drawings, photographs, and computer generated images. I have run my own independent graphics studio for nearly 20 years. I speak Hebrew, English and German, and am learning Arabic. In my design studio, I mainly work with social change and non-profit organizations, in Hebrew, Arabic and English.

Since for many years graphic art and design has been done completely by computer, I am delighted to return to hand-drawing the ketubot. It brings me back to physically creating my designs and the direct connection with materials.

I enjoy the creative process immensely. Each ketubah is hand-drawn, with watercolors,…

It brings me back to physically creating my designs and the direct connection with materials.

I enjoy the creative process immensely. Each ketubah is hand-drawn, with watercolors, pencils, ink, and hand-applied gilding. The finished piece is then processed on the computer in order to ensure the highest-quality print. I have chosen to use the Giclée printing process, which allows a representation to be as true as technically possible to the original drawing. Some designs have traditional Jewish symbols, and some are just from my imagination. When I make a new ketubah, I blend ancient symbols, modern techniques and biblical quotes.
