Painting & Lettering


For this client,
they wanted a
Hawaiian feel
incorporated with
the calligraphy.
The lettering and
the painting is
all done in gouache.

Decorative Letter


The San Fernando Regional chapter
of the Society for Calligraphy
created an alphabet together.

Wedding Invitation




This is an
invitation I did for
Brenda Himmel Stationery
in Santa Monica
using a variation of
copperplate script.

Academy Awards Calligraphy



I just completed calligraphy work for both Chanel and Vanity Fair for their Academy Award parties. It was a bit insane to work for both companies for 4 events in a four day period! I've posted samples of the calligraphy done on their seating cards. Both clients were quite pleased!

Chalkboard Menu

This is the first time I've done any art or lettering professionally on a chalkboard. At first I thought I could use actual chalk but soon realized I couldn't have the kind of fine control over my letters with a crude piece of chalk. I found out about chalk markers and then had a blast playing with fonts and colors! The board is being used by Bent on Coffee in their Thousand Oaks coffee house.

Collage Tag

I was supposed
to be working
on seating cards
but I created
a collaged tag
for my friend Renee
instead! Her gift is
a gift certificate at
a fabulous store in
Pasadena called
Zinnia!
