BIG NEWS! This course will be rolled out here and on YouTube FOR FREE! Enjoy the Busy Girl’s Guide to Hand Lettering all access – just keep coming back here to see what’s new!
I never thought I would be the girl teaching an online class, let alone in hand lettering. I wasn’t an art major, I was an outpatient therapist. LOL I started hand lettering over 5 years ago because I wanted to incorporate it in decor but didn’t want to pay big bucks. So I practiced. And made a lot of projects. And practiced some more. A year or two ago, hand lettering as an art started getting popular and I realized that I could enjoy it beyond just the function it provided. It became a way for me to relax. To create without the big bucks or a lot of time. It really was the functional art for this Busy Girl! Hand lettering expanded to every area of life for me – making gifts for friends, cards, t-shirts for my kids, tote bags, the works! I started teaching classes locally and realized how much more I could give if we did an online class! And here we are!
