The art of beautiful writing starts here. Hire a professional calligrapher for your wedding or heirloom artwork or take classes and learn the art.

Calligraphy is the art of beautiful writing. It is an art that dates back centuries and is still alive and well today. You see calligraphy on wedding invitations, medieval manuscripts, restaurant signs and all throughout our world and history. It’s my honor to contribute a small part to the greater community and art of calligraphy. Stroke by stroke, letters are formed and lines are flourished to bring a special and memorable touch to your wedding, event and home.

Weddings, calligraphy commissions, calligraphy classes

Hire me to create your wedding invitations, address your wedding envelopes, scribe a meaningful quote, or create a special certificate, heirloom  or commemorative art piece.

Take classes in person or online, in groups or in a private class. 

A Jersey girl at heart, calligraphy has captivated her spirit and she now works and teaches from Norfolk, Virginia.

Christen is  cohost of The Calligraphy Podcast, a space for calligraphers to talk about, share and grow in their art while cultivating community along the way.

Christen was seriously so amazing. I left hiring a calligraphy artist for the last minute and she was willing and able to work with me on a very short notice! She created a stunning display board with our guest seating chart on it. She is incredibly talented and I would highly recommend her work!!

Christen is amazing! I asked her if she could do the calligraphy for our oyster shell place cards for our wedding reception and there was no hesitation! Her work is phenomenal - I am extremely happy with how they turned out! If I ever had any questions, she got back to me in a timely manner, which was great!
