Serving Chicago IL

professional calligraphy artist in Chicago


From a young age, I expressed an interest in art and design. It began with sketching and drawing then quickly expanded into watercolor, woodcarving, sculpture, oil painting, and eventually printmaking. I was easy to spot from the paint spattered on my clothing, a library of sketch and art books spilling out from my book bag, and a couple of paint brushes nestled in my hair. I loved the whole process of creating art so much that, unsurprisingly, I ended up with an art degree.
As a child, when not painting up a storm, I had my nose in a Jane Austen novel and loved antique letters and penmanship. I wanted to improve my handwriting so much that I taught myself calligraphy. I studied workbooks day and night and practically went to sleep with a pen and ink in hand. Later, my calligraphy talent helped supplement my college expenses and included the pleasure of creating a retirement certificate for one of my professors.
Recently, I helped a friend create custom wedding invitations which rekindled my passion for calligraphy and design. Creating unique designs for weddings and special events allows me tobine my love for art, design, and paper with calligraphy. I always look forward to creating something memorable for my clients.
