About

I received my Bachelor's in Fine Art at SVA in NYC and I discovered calligraphy when I got married and decided to learn how to do it for my own invitations. Looking back, that was the worst calligraphy job I ever did (I'm pretty good at it now, don't worry) but I still fell in love with the art! My mother and my favorite instructor at school had been calligraphers and I have come to REALLY love the quiet meditative process. It still challenges me, and I like to see all the different ways that beautiful writing can help you can say something while you're - literally - saying something :)
