CALLIGRAPHY ARTIST

Calligraphy by Serena

Armed with a stash of pointy nibs and a bathtub of bespoke inks, Serena brings the graceful art of copperplate calligraphy to life through fanciful flourishes and experimental illustrations for events and envelopes worldwide.


With a steady hand and creative moxie, she's brushed nibs with the biggest names from Versace to Jimmy Choo. Serena's mastery depends on unwavering precision, rhythmic motion and ink expertise rivaling a chemist. 

 

When she's not lettering lyrical lines, you can find her geeking out over handwriting with groups like IAMPETH and Scribes of Central Florida.
