Throughout my life, I have felt the need to create. This has meant helping my Papa build furniture as a teen, decorating wedding cakes while in college and creating calligraphy, which I’ve been doing for over ten years.
Most people I talk to are quite curious that someone would be a professional calligrapher. It is, after all, the profession of Monks. However, the quiet repetition that is inherent in learning calligraphy gives me so much joy — seeing the beauty of the words and images that flow from my pen. As I’ve refined my skill over the years, I’ve learned that the more disciplined I am in my practice, the more freedom I have in creative expression.
