Life I design was born out of passion to live a creative life and from a desire to design things that suited my personal taste and what I wanted to have around me. I have been a fan of calligraphy for decades and had tried modern calligraphy style lettering again and again without much luck. One day about 5 years ago, I took an online calligraphy class where I learned about the exact tools that I needed and tips to ensure success with calligraphy! Fast forward to today, I've practiced my calligraphy writing for hours at a time. Have had my entire desk covered in letters and black strokes for days. Have had my hands stained with black ink that I thought would never wash out! But... I have also sold my modern calligraphy designs, been hired by large companies to create designs for them and have been commissioned to provide quotes, poems and even tattoos in my modern calligraphy style. All this while working from home on my schedule and what suited me and my family best! For the last year and a half, I have taught many in-person workshops to people who are looking to learn modern calligraphy using a dip pen, a brush pen and even a waterbrush pen! I am grateful to inspire, teach and share everything I can to help people reach their personal goals for taking a class with me. I have also written, photographed and published online guides for those who can't take an in-person class with me to be able to learn my Modern Calligraphy style from the comfort of their home, easily, affordably and quickly! I am excited to be a part of your personal and creative journey!
