Hi! I’m Amber. I’m a believer in finding the greatest inspiration from nature, which is why I try to spend as much time as I can outside. If I’m not outside, I’m probably still in my pajamas surrounded by paper and nibs and ink covered hands. I live in Buffalo, NY with a pretty little cat and my boyfriend, Don. I’m a calligrapher, designer, workshop teacher, and natural adventurer. My favorite color changes at least once a week, and my favorite thing to do when I’m not working is to spend time with friends and family.
Calligraphy is natural, organic, and can be elegant or casual. I’m mostly self-taught in pointed pen calligraphy. I started by mastering Copperplate with the help of a great book and lots and lots of practice. I immediately fell in love with calligraphy and spent the next few months perfecting my own styles. Every day is an improvement. I’m constantly inspired by the world around me and always amazed with the unique nature of creating by hand. Nothing I create is ever an exact duplicate of the one before, which is why handmade creations are so special.
I want to hear from you! Feel free to reach out and say hello.
