I have always loved paper and pens. In school, I couldn’t wait to get to 3rd grade so I could learn cursive writing and use a ballpoint pen. I didn’t realize it at the time, but that was a life goal. Over the years I played around with the calligraphy markers and fountain pens but things took a turn in 1996 when I took my first official calligraphy class. My lifelong obsession suddenly became legit! After attending untold numbers of workshops, conferences and conventions, in 2006 I said “see ya!” to the corporate life and hung out my calligraphy shingle. Since then, I’ve put words on so, so many things - paper, canvas, wood, drums, drumsticks, clay pipes, chalkboards, mirrors, people… you get the idea. What can you dream up?
The happiest part of my business is helping people who love the written word make their ideas and dreams a reality.
