My creative journey began in high school with my favorite tool to this day, the Sharpie. Doodling and making birthday notes for my friends is how I spent most of my time in class (sorry Mom and Dad). It is easy to say a pack of Sharpies was the favorite gift of any Christmas stocking or Easter basket. Letters and fonts have always been interesting to me. It wasn’t until my wedding that I picked up calligraphy and addressed my wedding invitations with the help from my mom who did traditional calligraphy. And here we are!
Calligraphy and lettering is my passion and what I love to do. However, it is not my job. I graduated in Landscape Horticulture and work for a landscape company. Calligraphy has become my “out” after long days. The thing that makes days at work and long nights of writing worth it is the people that I get to interact with. They come to me with ideas and visions of what they want, and I get to turn those in to realities for them. That is why I love to create. My favorite things to do are Bible verse prints. It is clear that the verse is very important to that person and it is amazing to be a part of something they will cherish. It is not the actual piece of paper with pretty letters they love, it is the meaning behind it and the constant reminder they are able to have with it.
