“Calligraphy is an art form that uses ink and a brush to express the very souls of words on paper.”
At an early age, I fell in love with calligraphy. I was about to get married and from making the bridesmaids’ dresses to arranging the flowers, I was determined to do it myself! I even wanted to address my own wedding invitations and began taking calligraphy lessons to learn how.
Once I touched pen to paper and watched the gorgeous letters unspool, I was hooked.
As the years passed, I found that there is always something new to discover about calligraphy — a rare technique, a different style — that keeps me coming back for more.
And in today’s fast-paced world, where multitasking from morning until night is the norm, it’s nice to slow down every once in a while and appreciate something made with care, with intent and entirely by hand.
Studying, supporting and creating art has been my focus since that first calligraphy lesson 36 years ago. I have a master’s degree in art history from Louisiana State University and an art history B.A. from the University of New Orleans.
I am honored to be the President of the New Orleans Lettering Arts Association, as well as a member of the International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting. I am also a volunteer docent for the New Orleans Museum of Art.
And for the past five years, I’ve been fortunate enough to put that pen to paper again and again on behalf of my wonderful clients. Now, I would like to create something unique for you.
Whether it be a set of beautifully-addressed envelopes, a handwritten poem or an illuminated letter — let me design that one-of-a-kind object, that special keepsake, that you and yours will cherish for years to come.
