KATHY'S CALLIGRAPHY STORY
I took my first calligraphy class in New Jersey in 1972 at the age of 16, and fell in love with it instantly. I took class after class, perfecting my skills and my own personal style of lettering.
Friends and family starting asking me to do their wedding invitations, and create lettering for special quotes as gifts... and within a short period of time, my calligraphy business was born.
Since those early years I have:
- lettered literally thousands upon thousands of wedding invitations, including those of actors Eva LaRue, John O'Hurley, and broadcast journalist Ileana Bravo
- created calligraphy "mailbox" envelopes on the 1980 campaign plane for the soon-to-be Vice President George H.W. Bush and his staff while working as a flight attendant with United AirLines for him and Ronald Reagan
- created the guest book calligraphy and addressed subsequent thank-you note envelopes for the 2009 funeral of Mark Felt (Watergate's "Deep Throat")
- addressed hundreds of envelopes for U.S. Embassy events while living outside Washington, D.C.
- lettered the captions on over 1,000 mats for large framed photographs at Disney World in Orlando, FL
- designed many invitations, signage, and tributes for groups and corporations, such as the Women's Campaign Fund, United AirLines, Kenwood Inn and Spa, Design Arts Seminars, and the International Trademark Association
- sent calligraphy work to clients all over the United States, England, France, Spain, and Italy
- done calligraphic lettering for so many individuals and couples I have lost count! :)
I rarely go a day without writing something in calligraphy, just to keep my "hand" in it. It truly is a life-long love of mine, one that has enhanced my life in many wonderful ways.
As an example, in 1978, when filling out the four page application for United AirLines in hopes of fulfilling my dream to become a flight attendant, I decided to do it in calligraphy.
I got that initial interview, and ultimately the job. I was told that since United was getting over 10,000 applications per month at that time, most were never called... but they chose my application because it stood out.
Make your event stand out, too, by using my calligraphic gifts and talent!
