Meet your Instructor:
Hi there! I'm Jessica Wang of JHWCalligraphy.
I have been playing with handwriting since I could dot my "i's" with circles. I learned calligraphy in 7th grade and fell in love with it, relishing the left-handed challenge that calligraphy brings! I won the accolade of the best left-handed calligrapher in my Montessori middle school in Hyde Park from my art teacher who taught me.
From this more-than-a-decade-long hobby I have created birthday cards, anniversary cards, mother's day cards, any occasion cards (the most fun!) to send to friends, family, loved ones, and randos! Most recently I consulted a local electronics business to create custom made holiday cards, complete with personalized corporate gift for their vendors and partners.
I also have posters of song lyrics I fell in love with to, literally, be surrounded by words. Check out my claim to fame at my Etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JHWCalligraphy. Can't wait to start beautifying letters with you!
Let's start lettering!
