I have loved calligraphy since I was a small child always tracing
letters and flourishes trying to figure out how it was done.
I was fortunate enough to attend a wonderful high school over 40 years ago,
that offered calligraphy classes and began to learn the basics of ink, pens
and lettering styles.
After raising three beautiful daughters and sending them off to college,
it was time to explore my passion for calligraphy.
I noticed an ad that was posted by a groom, looking for a calligrapher to address their
wedding invitation envelopes. I sent them a couple sample styles and a price quote and
was hired to work on their envelopes. When they sent the invitations to the guests, I was
referred to several more newly engaged couples. Once I started, people just kept calling; I must be
doing something right.
I work out of my home in Central Minnesota near St. Cloud.
