About This Class

Botanical Alphabet is all about whimsical, dainty letters cradled with nature's gift of leaves and flowers. This class will guide you through how to create faux calligraphy while inserting botanical designs throughout your designs.

For illustration references, I recommend my Botanical Line Drawing class, in which you'll find an abundance of ideas of what to use when illustrating your botanicals into your letters.

Peggy is a great teacher. she makes it seem do-able. I paused and did it along with her, it was a lot of fun. One of my favorite of her classes...though, I have loved them all!
This was an excellent class. An easy way to add character to your letter in such a delicate way.
I love it!!! Thank you :)

Peggy Dean

The Pigeon Letters | Lettering & Illustration

I'm Peggy. I'm native to the Pacific Northwest and I love all things creative. From a young age I was dipping everything I could into the arts. I've dabbled in quite an abundance of varieties, such as ballet, fire dancing, crafting, graphic design, traditional calligraphy, hand lettering, painting with acrylics and watercolors, illustrating, creative writing, jazz, you name it. If it's something involving being artistic, I've probably cycled through it a time or two (or 700). 

Today, I'm known prominently for hand lettering and my unique line illustrations. I'm thrilled to be sharing them with you!
