Hey friends! I thought I'd participate in Friday introductions because I haven't shown my face here for awhile! A few things about me:
1. My other creative outlet is flower arranging, it's so relaxing for me and reminds me of why I first started with painting and calligraphy!
2. My favorite stores to shop at are GAP, Banana Republic, and @carlyjeanlosangeles 😍
3. I love to drive.
4. I have an auto immune condition, rheumatoid arthritis. So, as a person who can't stop using her hands, I rely heavily on several supplements and specific way of eating to combat the pain 😉
5. Lately, I've been gaining inspiration most from acrylic painting, and modern brush lettering.
Happy weekend friends! PC: @livn_m

Mirror seating charts: so beautiful, so hard to photograph without looking like a dork 😂 from yesterday at the @fortgarryhotel, for Courtney and Joel getting married today ❤️ with @soireeplanning.
Also please admire my beautiful new bag from @wilderwpg. I've only been dreaming of it since last Christmas 😍
Here's my piece for day 18 of #OCMythicalCreatures , Mermaid! So there is no sunlight in sight today, so I had to take this inside. Swipe for shimmer photos and video! It doesn't do the shimmer justice tho! I made this whole piece using my hand crafted IlluminINKs! Woop! .

It's been an extraordinarily crazy summer but I'm slowly getting back into the habit of taking some time in the evening to spend on lettering. It's so relaxing yet feels like I'm still being kind of productive instead of just staring blankly at a TV screen. This prompt is from the #unexpectedlettering challenge hosted by @kileyinkentucky! #handlettering#elementalcarbon#moderncalligraphy
