Many years ago, a hobby shop class in Italic Calligraphy introduced me to hand lettering. I have attended International Calligraphy Conferences, Retreats and Seminars, continuing a lifelong exploration of different scripts and practicing the art of writing beautifully.

I have a background in Graphic Design and Commercial Art. Clients include the City of San Luis Obispo, Cal Poly University and Columbia Children's Center.  My work has been published in Elegant Bride Magazine, Letter Arts Review and Dandy Lion Publications.  Member of The Society for Calligraphy, Los Angeles, California

In keeping with hand made letters, my business is "old school" style. I provide clients with original art which can be taken to a printer of choice. Payment is by check or cash only. No credit cards accepted.
