Ed, my client, called me on the telephone and tentatively asked if I could letter an excerpt in calligraphy as a gift for his new girlfriend. I smiled and said, “I do that all the time.”
I wrote and illustrated these versal capital letters as two matching spring-themed calligraphy pieces for a lovely client.

Get behind the scenes of how I created this custom piece for Jase and Brittany’s bridal table, from concept to creation.
I love to deliver work like this to my clients organized and ready to go. Planning an event like this requires so much attention to detail and I enjoy doing my part to minimize the energy my work requires for display.
The poem is from the perspective of the deceased, a comforting reminder of all the ways they never truly leave us. I love gift commissions — I enjoy ferrying love and thoughtfulness from one person to another.
I choose between calligraphy styles, writing tools, and paper to show energetic and sentimental elements of your message.
I work in broad and pointed pen calligraphy in carious script styles, paper styles. Trust me, we have options.
My work is carefully treated, organized, and well-packaged. I design to delight and keep the tactile experience of the viewer in mind from start to finish.
