About

If someone told me when I was fifteen that I would become so absolutely in love with designing monograms, I probably would have laughed! But of course, at fifteen, when I took a job answering phones over the Christmas holidays for a master hand-engraver, I had no idea that his influence and guidance would bring me here.

It's so easy to let computers do the work these days. Don't get me wrong, I do love my mac and don't know what I'd do without it, but there's something extremely special about putting pen to paper and getting results that no computer could ever create!

So, if you ask about me, here would be a few cliff notes... I love art and music and travel and cooking and friends ...I'm a true southern girl that can't stand humidity but loves everything else about the beautiful South... I have the most amazing supportive set of parents,…

So, if you ask about me, here would be a few cliff notes... I love art and music and travel and cooking and friends ...I'm a true southern girl that can't stand humidity but loves everything else about the beautiful South... I have the most amazing supportive set of parents, sister, and brother-in-law and the most adorably spoiled puppy on earth... I love old engravings and books and documents and rummaging through antique markets for design inspiration... I'm currently learning how to hand-engrave and can't wait for my work to look better than chicken-scratch... and if I could move back to London, England again for any length of time, I would in a heartbeat!

Creating custom monograms is such a rewarding art that continues to change, evolve, and inspire me. Thanks for letting me share a bit of myself with you and I hope that my designs give you a little inspiration as well!
