It all happened so organically, I would have never imagined a year ago that I would be a full-time business owner. I started teaching myself calligraphy for my wedding last year and just fell in love. It’s a wonderfully creative outlet that also can be so meditative and soothing. I have been doing calligraphy for over a year now and officially launched Lacquer 3 months ago.
Lacquer as a business name has been with me for over a decade now and has had a few other possible shapes before fully developing as a calligraphy and design studio. As an art history major in college, I find antique Japanese lacquerware to be so beautiful with its high sheen, while at the same time so hard and resilient – I really like that dichotomy.
What I love about the calligraphy business is the endless ways in which you can apply the art form to suit any taste or event. Whether you’re looking for a more traditional script on smooth cotton paper or super modern lettering on clear acrylic, I enjoy working with clients to find just the right style that fits them. It definitely keeps things interesting!
In addition to custom projects for weddings and events, I get excited about the little details that can elevate the everyday to a special occasion. I really believe strongly in having people over at the spur of the moment, even when the house isn’t clean (there’s nothing wrong with showing people that you have a life and aren’t Martha Stewart) and that as much as I love minimalist decor, I am definitely not a minimalist!
