First and foremost, teaching English has been my vocation for the last seven years. I adore my students & I believe that I am the luckiest teacher in the world.

When I am not in my classroom, you can find me in my art studio practicing calligraphy and experimenting with new tools. Otherwise, I am out in the garden, digging in the earth or enjoying the local beaches with my husband. I will always be a lover of the ocean, mountains, poetry, calligraphy nibs, & old book stores.

My passion for lettering began many moons ago in college, when I worked as an artist for Trader Joe’s. I initially began making signs for weddings when my best friends started to find true love and settle down. Word spread, my skills developed, and I fell in love with this industry. I still have a lot to learn, but I am so grateful for the opportunity to pursue my passions in both education and art. Finding balance is key to everything.
