A little introduction…

For as long as I can remember I’ve loved handwriting.  Strange, but true.  I like to think of calligraphy as art with rules – you have total creative license within the confines of making distinguishable letters.   This is where my right and left brain meet.

I’m a Registered Nurse by trade, but really and truly always wanted to be a stay-at-home mom.  I’ve had the greatest privilege of being just that for our daughter since she was born, but now she’s in play school a few days a week and this distant memory called “free time” has come back into my life.  Cue making this “friends and family” hobby an official business.

I’ve trained in classic copperplate and italic styles, but through the years have developed my own take on these traditional models to make them my own.   I consider it a huge privilege to be asked to work with my clients – anything from the save the dates to the getaway car sign, and everything in-between – my goal is to bring a beautiful, unique touch to your special occasion.   I take your investment in this service seriously, and have high standards for myself as well as the product I produce.  I’ve been a bride and hostess;  I completely empathize with the stress involved in finalizing a guest list, unforseen changes, and general wedding/party drama.  I promise I won’t add to that.  If being a mother to a toddler has taught me anything, we all need people in our life who can roll with the punches and give a little grace.

Sincerely, thank you for taking the time to view this site and my work.   Please feel free to contact me with any questions and inquiries.   I would love to play a small part in your next occasion!
