Patti has always loved arts and crafts and hand lettering. Several years ago, after receiving a hand-calligraphed journal, she was inspired to learn the art of calligraphy. Following several calligraphy courses, she began to make hand lettered signs and paper goods for her own personal use, which grew into supplying a local small business and doing custom work for individuals. She has also enjoyed using her skills in doing wedding calligraphy. In her spare time, she loves exploring new hiking trails and spending time with her family.
