The beauty behind hand lettering is in the imperfections. Learning how to master flaws and channel them into character is what makes your brand unique to you. Breaking down these elements will give you a foundation that you can confidently build your craft upon.
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!
