This calligraphy project was from a recent order of laser cut names that I calligraphed for a wedding in LA. ADORE the name for "Queen B". How can you not love that? Cheers!

It has been a tremendous honor and my pleasure to provide calligraphy for Team USA for the Rio 2016 Olympics. It was all very "hush-hush" with contracts and such, but my role was to calligraph names for EACH Olympic athlete, coach, staff member etc. So of course, that was over 1,000 people hence I worked on-site at the Olympic processing center for the athletes for a few weeks. I must admit that it was pretty groovy writing out all of the names of those whose talent we have come to love and admire.
It was truly a cool experience and I honestly felt very proud to assist those that represent our awesome country better known as the United States. Cheers!
Hustling, hustling! I know that I've been terrible about posting lately due to triple booking myself :). Here is an agate stone job that I'm working on right now. Going back in the next few days to place calligraphy on the back for an event in Los Angeles next month. Cheers!
Quite often, I am asked "so you are a calligrapher/penman/engraver? How do you make a living at that?" Well, here is one way....fragrance bottle engraving. The last 2 weeks have been fragrance bottle engraving events nonstop for Mother's Day. I LOVE IT! It was such a pleasure working with Prada, Calvin Klein, Jimmy Choo, Marc Jacobs and Chloe yesterday.
I love that I am able to use my love of hand lettering, calligraphy & engraving AND make a living. Who could ask for more? If you noticed that my business is making a departure from wedding invitation design and wedding envelope addressing, you would be correct. I absolutely ADORE making the reception pieces (tiles, agate stones, mirror seating charts, laser cut wood calligraphy) and those will REMAIN as interestingly they have become what I am known for :). Hope you enjoy this journey as much as I am. Cheers!
