My love for calligraphy started early in my life. One of my earliest memories is of my father, who was himself a career hand-lettering artist, teaching me how to draw a perfectly symmetrical capital A. My mother furthered my interest by enrolling me in my first calligraphy class when I was in primary school. And although I started my adult life as a journalist, interviewing celebrities and writing about entertainment, pop culture and food for a national magazine, I happily pushed my computer away and picked up my pen when I launched Meant To Be Calligraphy in 2009. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to provide gorgeous lettering for a host of amazing clients. I spend my days playing with paper and ink and love every minute of it!
A decade ago you would have found me perusing fine stationery boutiques on weekends. I love the texture and artistry of paper. Ten years and six kids later I travel with too many sticky fingers to linger in a shop, the temptation is too great for all of us to indulge. So, in 2009 when my long-time friend, Michele, left the world of journalism for calligraphy I secretly envied her. All that lovely stationery before her! In 2011, a window of time opened up in our lively household and Michele graciously invited me to join her as Studio Manager for Meant To Be Calligraphy. It is a privilege and joy to work alongside my friend and the art she creates for our clients.
