Melissa is my Hero!
Definitely recommend Melissa's Roman class. Nice, even speaking voice. Keeps moving right along. Gives very explicit directions.





Melissa Esplin

Calligrapher, Hobbyist, Mama Bear

Melissa Esplin loves cooking, sewing, photography, calligraphy, design, art, mothering and watching embarrassing amounts of mediocre TV. She struggles with laundry, mopping the floors and managing realistic expectations.

Melissa is constantly rediscovering her balance as she and her husband, Chris, build Calligraphy.org and take care of three ridiculously sticky children.

She's been teaching calligraphy since 2010 and online since 2012. In the four years she's been teaching calligraphy online, she's been fortunate to take a front seat in many artists' beginnings and see the love for letters develop first-hand.
