What you’ll get here
Before I talk about ME and go over why or how I started. I want to first say THANK YOU for being here and let you know that I am excited to take this journey with you. I am here to help you develop your creative path and practice the art of hand-lettering. To hopefully help spark that joy within you. The joy that I feel when I create – you can have it too!
You’re probably here because you love to create and make all the things too. You may have a small creative business of your own, maybe you dabble in hand-lettering as well but want some extra help to take your art to the next level. Or maybe you are a complete beginner and you just want a relaxing & fun hobby.

Have you ever felt ‘stuck’ in a 9-5 job that left you feeling uninspired and wondering why you kept going back? Money is usually a huge motivator for staying – paying the bills is important. However, I believe there is a reason larger than money that really keeps us where we are… do you want to know what that is?
(((comfort)))… yep, that comfort zone will suck you in every time. If you’re not careful, you’ll remain there (sometimes your entire life). I know, because I was once stuck in this zone myself.
After having my first child, I worked a desk job that lacked an ounce of creativity. It took me many years to discover something was missing.
Then, one day I finally picked up a paint brush and began painting in our kitchen. It was a request from my brother, he wanted me to paint him something for Christmas. I painted a mountain scene.
My husband walked in to the room and blurted ” wow, I’ve never seen you do anything creative.” SHOCK rolled over my face and I must have stopped for a good minute before it sank in. What did he just say??!
I was known for being creative, for drawing and anything artsy since I was a wee-kindergartener… but he was right. HE never saw this side of me. I left this girl behind years ago and locked my ‘creative spirit’ away.
A pivotal moment
This moment you guys, was PIVOTAL in my life and career. From this moment on, life changed. I went back to school, got a dream job working as a Graphic Designer for a local stationery company, then later quite this job to stay home with my kids and give this small business dream of mine a shot.
Making art & sharing it
I am so happy he made that comment and that I took the leap out of my comfort zone to get back to where I belonged. Making art and sharing it. I’m telling you here, because I believe that it is too common for each of us to do this. To lock away a piece of us that allows us to fully become who we were meant to be.
I want YOU to come to the other side of the ‘comfort zone’ with me, to take back your inner child and use your gifts to your fullest potential. Are you willing to take that step?
