A Penchant for Making Pens

Calligraphy has been my passion for 41 years and I've studied nearly every different style and medium. I'm very picky about my own tools and I put that same energy into every pen I create. A comfortable well-balanced pen with just the right grip can make a big difference in the quality of your letters and how your hand feels when you finish writing, whether it's a cherished poem or those 300 envelopes that will help pay the bills. Calligraphy should be a joy and I want to help make it that way for you.

I hand craft each pen in my little wood shop in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. I'm extremely slow and meticulous which means I don't make a lot of them but the ones I make are well crafted and done with care. If you have any questions about adjusting or taking care of your pen or about calligraphy in general, I'm happy to help in any way that I can. Thank you for visiting my shop!

    Owner, Designer, Creator

    I'm a calligrapher and illustrator and I wear my inky fingers with pride. I've been known to grind my own ink and create my own tools in a never-ending quest for just the right mark. Sharing this passion with others is one of my great joys.

    Keith is my husband and the reason I'm able to get anything done at all. He's an engineer by day and he uses his expertise to put together the best jigs, work benches, and tools to help me create my pens and accessories.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I take a limited number of custom orders. Feel free to make suggestions of what you would like to see in my shop but if you have design or time restrictions, I will let you know if I can fit your request in the schedule. Rush orders will require an extra fee.

Care instructions

Never leave a wood pen to soak in water. Wipe it off with a damp cloth and dry it well. Also avoid using cleaning products with ammonia which can damage the finish of the pen. When you dip the pen in ink, only allow the nib to submerse in the ink and not the entire flange. If ink dries inside the flange, it can be hard to remove the nib. Keep your custom pen out of direct sunlight and treat it with care.
