Balance. I think it is a silly idea. So many people are striving for the idea of this perfectly balanced life.

Instead of balance, I'm seeking harmony. A mix of highs and lows that make a beautiful sound.

My life is my work and my work is my life.

I see design everywhere, it is a part of who I am, right down to how I plan cooking, picking which book I'm going to buy next, to how I want to refinish my motorcycle build - it's all about design and function.

Here is a look at my life...


January 2019 Downloads

It’s a new year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and you are well on your way to diving into the new year.

Here are this year’s first downloads. Two quotes that I love. One from Cinderella and one from one of my favorite bands, Mumford and Sons.

The type of pen I used is on the bottom of both sheets.

If you have any questions or ideas for future downloads, feel free to email me your quote or idea projects. I would love to do them and send them out and feature YOU as the lettering friend of the month!



Quick! Friends are coming over...

There is nothing better than an unexpected visit from friends or family, but in those moments the Italian in me screams "feed everyone!" This simple sugar cookie recipe is the perfect quick snack for friend and family to enjoy and there aren't any hidden ingredients, these base ingredients are usually always in my fridge or cupboard! Enjoy!

(This is not an ad for All Recipes, it is simply one of my favorite recipe sites and these cookies are amazing!)


November Downloads

After teaching workshops over the last couple years, I experience such a high immediately after the workshops. It’s exciting for me to share a passion and know that you and so many others are interested in.

Quickly after the high, I realize I want to keep you encouraged in your practice and provide a tool to keep your hand lettering growth fun and challenging. In order to keep in touch with all my students, I’m beginning a monthly download subscription. The best part, it is free!

I’ll be emailing 2-3 sheets of quotes, tags, compositions and anything in-between once a month. When I email them, I’ll also let you know what pen(s) I used for each piece.

This month’s quotes are two 5”x7” quotes, one to highlight the changing weather, the other was a Facebook request. I created both of these pieces with a Tombow Dual Brush pen (I used both ends!).

I’m excited to share in this continuation of our lettering learning together! Happy Lettering!
