The new issue of Smitten Magazine (Issue 14) is themed Painterly, and I am so honored to be part of the styled shoot called Vermeer Visions! I worked with the talented team of Nomad Nuptuals, MeghanElise Photography, Jen Events, and others at the spectacular St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point.
I absolutely adore this dreamy shoot with beautiful, muted colors. I used shades of warm gray, blush, and gold to create the wedding invitation suite, table numbers, and place cards. It’s definitely one of my favorites by far.
A shot of the full wedding invitation suite. I love how the gold “painterly” brushed effect on the pale blush cards worked out perfectly!
For more of this breathtaking shoot, head over to Smitten Magazine and check out the Painterly issue, or look for it at a retailer near you!

Hi friends! Wanted to share that I did a Q&A with Lucy of The Pen Company – how I got started, favorite projects, tools and supplies, and some thoughts on calligraphy as well. Hope you enjoy the read and thanks so much for your support :)
Oh. My. Goodness. How much do I love this styled shoot at Hawks Ranch?! This beautiful collaboration was featured on smitten-mag.com today and is definitely one of the favorites I’ve worked on so far! It’s just so unique and stylish from the venue, the flowers, design and decor. I absolutely adore the Love Struck theme and ran with the golden arrow motif as I created the table numbers, seating cards and place cards for the shoot.
It’s always so wonderful to work with these amazing vendors! Go check out the feature to see all of the fabulous photos!

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Eileen of Enamor Events on this beautiful invitation suite for a muted pastels palette that is featured today! I had so much fun working on suite as well as signage, using muted pastels as inspiration.
For all the beautiful photos and details, see the full feature on Burnetts Boards.
That was a neat few days. So very humbled to be part of the Word Art list with some of my lettering and calligraphy heroes. Thanks, Instagram for the feature!
I was contacted earlier this year by Albertine at Flow Weekly to share this calligraphy/lettering piece for the publication and to do a little Q&A about calligraphy and the 365 days of daily lettering I did last year. I finally got my copy today – looks like the package made a detour to Mexico before landing in my mailbox in California!
“Hartelijk dank” to Albertine and Flow Weekly for the feature, much appreciated!
What a way to start the weekend. Thanks to Alexandra Lange for writing a wonderful article about calligraphers on Instagram and including a few of my thoughts as well. The article: The Calligraphy Stars of Instagram.
She also shared insights from Seb Lester, John Stevens, Faust New York, and showed work by Gail Madalag and Artem Stepanov, all calligraphy heroes of mine.
I am humbled and thrilled to be mentioned and quoted in the article, since I’m just a student and nowhere near as skilled as any of the calligraphers in the article. But I do love Instagram and how it connects people who love calligraphy from all over the world. Hooray for calligraphy!
A few months ago, Mattie of Spark and Wildflower contacted me about a project she’s working on – a DIY Pallet Escort Card Display for a Style Me Pretty feature! I was more than happy to be a part of this fun collaboration!
I sourced raw-edged ivory cards from IrishBrigid on Etsy which were perfect for the charming, rustic style. The cards were lettered by me in a fun casual script in Sumi ink.
Mattie did such a wonderful job! I loved seeing my calligraphy as part of this great DIY project and would love to collaborate with stylists, planners or photographers!
To see more, go check out the feature at Style Me Pretty!
