Arely Mattson's Profile

About

Bella, my pen name, means "beautiful" in Spanish. Calligraphy is the art of beautiful writing. I am a studio artist that fell in love with penmanship, miniaturism, and illustration work through the study of ancient texts at Harvard Divinity School, where I got my MTS.

I've lived in Mexico, Spain, and, for the last 10 years, the U.S. I have provided calligraphy and illustration services in Kansas, Tennessee, and Texas- where my husband teaches International Economics -and now I design and watercolor maps and other custom work for the rest of the world through Etsy!

I really love the process of custom design, and through my work I have had the delight of being a part of many people's happiest moments in life. I feel blessed to do this for a "job" because it truly doesn't feel like work when you enjoy it so much.
