Get to know Laura
My name is Laura and I am the founder/owner of The Calligraphy Touch and a proud mother of four beautiful children. I earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting and presently hold an accountant position.
My passion for letters started at a relatively young age. Ever since I can remember, I have been surrounded by markers, pens, and cute stationery. Some of my fondest memories as a little girl were playing “magazine”. I would let my imagination run wild by pretending to be the author, illustrator, and editor of my own magazine business. Nothing made me happier than spending my days writing, coloring, and drawing. The moment I discovered calligraphy, I fell in love with it.
I was intrigued by every aspect of it…the brush pens, the pointed tips, the art form, etc. The art of calligraphy to me was and still is calming, relaxing, meditative, joyous, and therapeutic. So much so, that throughout the years, I have taken a number of online courses, attended workshops, and dedicated countless hours to perfecting my craft. I constantly found myself adorning things with handwritten lettering and that alone fueled me to learn and improve my technique. Due to practice and determination, I can now confidently add beautiful lettering to most surfaces…nothing is off limits! Anything from elegant paper, chalkboards, to ceramics and glass, and many other surfaces. I truly believe that lettering adds a unique and classy touch. It is a way to enhance an object and/or a way to beautifully convey a message. My hobby and passion turned into a business because I want to share my love for Calligraphy and Lettering. This in turn, has provided work opportunities that I would have never imagined and has opened many doors. I am proud to say that I have now added personal touches with meaningful messages to gifts and keepsakes and have done so at various exclusive live events for luxury brands, weddings, corporate gifting events, as well as personal events.
When I am not fully immersed in my craft you can find me spending and enjoying time with my family, usually on an outdoor adventure.
I really appreciate you taking the time to be here! I hope to one day have the privilege to personalize something for you!
