I am a self-taught professional calligrapher working with private and fashion clients since 2001. As I kid I loved changing up my handwriting, copying and incorporating styles and flourishes as I came across lettering I loved. I received a set of calligraphy markers as a birthday gift, and filled pages of tracing paper with traditional italic style. Decades later, my next door neighbor remembered my childhood hobby and asked me to do her wedding invitation envelopes. I mentioned this at work (when I was full-time project managing at a luxury graphic design agency) and an amazing opportunity fell into my lap - addressing the invitations to the Salvatore Ferragamo flagship opening in SoHo! From there I worked with a variety of fashion clients completely via word of mouth. That's how Joanna Hillman, Fashion Director at Harper's Bazaar, discovered me and asked me to do her wedding invitations (you'll find this design all over Pinterest!) That eventually led to working with the biggest fashion PR agency in New York as their go-to calligrapher, and I've had so many amazing opportunities to work on Fashion Week projects since then. My lettering styles have expanded greatly over the years; with every project I learn a new skill set and am currently obsessed with watercolor brush lettering and mixing my own custom inks. If you have an idea and an aesthetic you love, I can recreate it. Or you can choose from some of my established styles.
