Beautiful Calligraphy for the Modern              

I’m Chelsea and I create

bride

I began learning calligraphy at the age of 27, just at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic. From the first moment I picked up the pen and started experimenting with the art, I was in love. I practiced hours a day, researching courses I could take from home and doing everything I could to hone my craft. You could say it kept me sane in an insane time.  So often, I would look up from my desk and realize it was midnight and I had been hard at work for hours on end without even realizing it.  But the most amazing part, what still astounds me to this day, is that I never, ever get tired of it.

"It is the words that are read, but the calligraphy that is felt."

I believe in adding art to unexpected places.

The personalized mats Chelsea made for me are just beautiful! Chelsea was so great to work with, so pleasant and very responsive, so helpful with providing her expertise and special artistic touch! 

Still, whenever I open a jar of ink, a sort of calm sets in and I become instantly at ease. I smell of the ink, the weight of the pen in my hand, and the smooth, tactile feel of the paper transport me to another world where nothing matters but the beauty I can create with my tools. 

It's an amazing feeling knowing you can transform something as simple as an envelope into a work of art, and not just any work of art.  These works become a part of our lives, they herald the important moments in our history and become treasured keepsakes for years to come.

It all started with a calligraphy pen and some ink.

Even with it's ups and downs, your life, your story, are beautiful and I can't wait to create calligraphy that beautifully represents it.  Where ever you are in your story, be it a single guy who has to come up with Christmas gifts for his whole crew or a newly engaged woman with a slew of wedding plans to make or a new parent who wants to celebrate the wonderful life you're created, I would love to be a tiny little part of that tale. 

My love for pointed pen has brought me so much joy and I hope I can pass a bit of that joy to you.

Chelsea did an amazing job doing a custom calligraphy for me. She help me select the best colored matting and send examples of different calligraphy styles to select from.

Amazing is the word that comes to mind.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

LET'S WORK TOGETHER

Quite simply, I do what I do because I love it.  I love taking a simple envelope and transforming it into something gorgeous with only my pen, some ink, and a touch of imagination. I love hearing my clients' visions and coming up with ways to make them a reality.  I love being a part of some of the most important events in my clients' lives.  

for the love of beauty…
