- Jessica Yee
Jessica Yee spends her days writing, but she is not a writer. The locally renowned calligrapher puts pen to paper masterfully spelling out names and addresses; honing her technique; and experimenting with new letter art. Jessica began studying the lettering arts thirty years ago, learning from some of the premier calligraphers and letter artists of the world.
The founder of the Oblique Pen finds beauty in letters and how they are created. Jessica loves the elegant smooth and fluid scripts that a pointed pen creates. Moreover, she enjoys meeting and working with clients, sharing in their poignant moments while bringing art to life.
When the married mother of four is not busy creating an artistic expression of a wonderful occasion, Jessica is heavily involved in serving the arts locally.
