CALLIGRAPHER, ARTIST, OVERALL SNARKY HUMAN

growing up, I was always one of those students who was more concerned with HOW the notes looked rather than WHAT the notes said (much to the chagrin of my parents and teachers, I'm sure). beautiful letters were a passion of mine before I knew what the word "calligraphy" meant, so it was only natural that when a video popped up on my Instagram feed of someone using a pointed pen and making words into art, I decided to take a stab at it.

 

I've been a calligrapher since March 2017, and picked up painting not too far after that as a way to add more to my calligraphy work. I love the challenge of watercolor, and as a bit of a control freak, I try to take every opportunity to push myself and relinquish a bit of that and let the colors do what they will.

whether you're... a bride looking for a bespoke touch on your big day, from custom designed invitations, hand-written invitations and place cards, a seating chart, custom signage, bachelor(ette) party goodies, and more; a fellow creative looking to collaborate on a creative project or photo shoot; an aspiring creative looking for tips; an old high school classmate who just discovered I have fun stickers in my Etsy... I'm here for it.
