I’ve been working on launching my business for over a year, but I officially launched in January 2017.

Writing is something I’ve just always loved to do. I’m the girl who loved writing down notes in school, threw out to-do lists if they weren’t written neatly enough, and once hand-wrote a Hogwarts acceptance letter addressed to my younger sister. When I started being requested to write things for other people, my gears started to turn and I knew I wanted more. So, after years of doodling, practicing calligraphy and perfecting my own handwriting styles, I decided to share my love of calligraphy and lettering with my peers and see where it takes me. When you get that gut feeling – the one that makes you say, “Okay, I think I’m onto something…” – I don’t believe in letting that feeling disappear. I guess it’s one of the great things about being part of a very entrepreneurial generation; you are inspired to find whatever it is you love doing and just go after it.


I think detaching myself from technology is one of the things I love about calligraphy. Although I often digitize my work and I use social media to promote my business, we live in a very technology-dominated world and it’s really nice to just pick up a pen and power through a project sometimes. Making people happy and seeing a customer satisfied with my work is also definitely up there, especially when I’m working on something so personal, like a wedding for example. That’s when I know I’ve really brought their vision to life and made their day special.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge Harry Potter nerd. I haven’t been asked to write anything HP-related yet, though. If this sounds like you – Hello. Nice to meet you. I am your girl.

Write more! It’s good for you 🙂
