Calligrapher, Illustrator, Designer, Teacher

Ciarra Rouwhorst is a self taught artist and designer. She began learning calligraphy and design right here on SkillShare in 2015. She then used those skills to start her business Silver Fox Calligraphy & Design in 2016. She works mainly with bespoke wedding stationery specializing in organic calligraphy and watercolor illustration. She also offers brand identity design for fine art wedding businesses who want authentic hand lettered logos. 

She started teaching on SkillShare in 2016, with her watercolor workshop. Since then she has launched The Self Made Creative Series. This is a collection of Skillshare classes designed to give self taught creatives the tools they need take creative leaps. You can also join the movement on Instagram @theselfmadecreative and use the hashtag #selfmadecreative for a chance to be featured. There is also a Facebook group where you can ask questions and get encouragement from other self taught artists and creatives. There is a quote which Ciarra lives by which you might appreciate by Mary Oliver, "The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their creative power restive and uprising, and gave it neither power now time." So take time for your creative drive, and live without regrets.
