A flourishing creative outlet comes from a skill that so many think is tedious

Most people I talk to are quite curious that someone would be a professional calligrapher. It is, after all, the profession of Monks. However, the quiet repetition that is inherent in learning calligraphy gives me so much joy -- seeing the beauty of the words and images that flow from my pen.

As I've refined my skill over the years, I've learned that the more disciplined I am in my practice, the more freedom I have in creative expression. This is an apparent contradiction; however, I have to train my hand the way an athlete or a dancer would train their body so that I can be satisfied with my work.

This shines through my custom work for my clients, and my personal art projects. Over the past decade, I have been fortunate to see my work featured by Martha Stewart's "Bride's Guide" blog and on display at the Wally Workman Gallery, the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and Austin Public Libraries.

"Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might."
(Ecclesiastes 9:10)
