Rio Olympics 2016 Team USA Calligrapher - Houston Calligraphy

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!

Fragrance Bottle Engraving - Houston Engraver

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 PradaCalvin 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!
