I've taken a ton of personality and career interest tests and have always been strangely centered, smack dab in the middle on the graph of my results. Logical, but a creative bleeding heart; impulsive but also thoughtful, outspoken and also a listener. After college, I found myself more confused than ever. I began a career in social work but had a creative itch that needed scratching. I picked up a calligraphy pen and haven't put it down since. After a tough day, I can't wait to get home and pen a favorite quote or inspiring lyric. Calligraphy is so much more than pretty lettering, it's handcrafted and personal. I think of calligraphy like a fingerprint, each artisan has their own style. For me, each curve is crafted with mindful precision and purpose.
As I continued to practice calligraphy, family and friends began asking for commissioned orders and encouraged me to open an Etsy shop. A year later, I launched Shotgunning for Love Letters. I now work out of my home office that I'm updating as often as possible.
Personally, I’m a tequila loving outgoing introvert that would rather stay home with my dog and a calligraphy pen because Bravo TV and the perfect margarita. Likely, I’ll have ink on my hands and paper sprawled all over my desk that is only cleaned off for photo shoots. I work best in messy environments with last minute deadlines to meet. I absolutely love writing the curve of my favorite calligraphy letters and wowing brides with one of-a-kind custom wedding invitations. I’m mostly known as a straight-forward and driven person with a propensity for honesty. My friends can always count on me to tell the truth, but I’ve learned to wait until asked…usually. I want people to know that flawed shit is the best shit and p.s., I love cussing.
