I've always had an affinity for handwriting - in the fifth grade, I would trade certain letters with classmates to achieve the perfect set of stylized characters. Now, brush calligraphy and hand lettering are my side hobbies, my creative vacations when I need to step away from the drawing board but keep my hands busy. I love to try out new styles and apply my skills to gifts for friends, and I am also beginning to accept small commissions.
