About Us

Hello, my name is Maybelle, and I am a calligrapher. The moment I picked up a calligraphy pen, I was hooked. There was something so zen and meditative about practicing, I wanted to learn all that I could about this art form.

Studying with different calligraphers in the Bay Area, I've translated the formal qualities of Copperplate and Spencerian into my own style.

Borrowing from the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, the best way to describe my illustration and lettering style is "perfectly imperfect."
