EX 9-5'ER TURNED FULL TIME CALLIGRAPHER, EDUCATOR AND CREATIVE BUSINESS COACH.
Want to be creative but think you don't have a creative bone in your body? I've been there. I was in search of an outlet from my very uncreative job in advertising and tech. I needed to create something with my hands instead of just using them to type email after email, pitch after pitch.
So I ventured way outside my comfort zone and picked up some brush markers and nibs. I found that with a lot of patience and practice, writing pretty calligraphy was possible.
Write Pretty Things started as a side hustle because working 9 to 5 was not my jam. So I thought why not take my love of calligraphy and see if I could turn it into a business?
After a few years of creating, learning the basics and forming my own modern style, I began teaching others about calligraphy as well mentoring other creative biz owners. Turns out, you can earn a living doing something you love.
If you love your coffee iced, drink your Malbec out of a mug and love dogs > cats, we should be calligrafriends.
