Oh yes, we made it! *high five all around* Welcome to Maurelle Calligraphy! Finally, a website with my name on it (slapping my own face to wake up from this dream) OK, so how did I get here?
It started when I first held a broad edged calligraphy pen in my high school drafting class. It was exhilarating! I was so eager to try my new found hobby that I made a History project adapting this art form; I am proud to share some pictures of my masterpiece (LOL) that my mom was able to salvage in our garage.
Life got busy after high school and my calligraphy practice went into hibernation. I finished two pre medical degrees but I ended up working in the Marketing industry while doing wedding and event hosting on the side.
Although this was the case, creativity never left me. I was able to use it on client presentations and in any situation that arose where I needed to call upon my skills.
Then the mushy part came along. I got engaged three years ago and I was sooooo excited to prepare for my wedding. First, there should be a lot of DIYs and oh yes *lightbulb* I should apply my long lost love for calligraphy. When it came time for me to address our envelopes, I bought a calligraphy pen and tried to write down my first word; but I was left wondering why it was so ugly. So I decided to let go of the idea but in place of that I created chalk wedding signs instead.
Indeed, one needs to put in the time to master any skill. A few months after my wedding I heard about a workshop in modern calligraphy by Fozzy and so I realized this was my chance to revive my relationship with ink and paper.
Today, two years later, I am here. Still passionate about this craft and still putting ink to paper. I am excited to flourish and Maurelle Calligraphy is the realization of my life long dreams. So now, let's create something beautiful together!. *play exit music*
