HELPING KICKASS CREATIVES EXPRESS THEMSELVES THROUGH MODERN+ FUN HAND LETTERING IS MY JAM
from translating lettering into real girl talk so you can finally rock those letters
to creating the perfect hand lettered design to uplevel your biz
Fueled by iced soy lattes, puppy kisses, and a steady stream of Vance Joy, I support my dreams (and said lattes) as a hand letterer…
… but my love of pretty words started in a very different form – as a bookworm turned English teacher to be precise. It wasn’t until a year of putting my lil Etsy shop on pause to teach at a university in the Dominican Republic (PUCMM, if ya nosy) that I realized how much I loved this lettering gig.
So I traded in Shakespeare and Poe for calligraphy workbooks and Adobe tutorials and dove straight into the world of lettering full time.
These days you can find me hanging out in my office with my rescue pup, Guinness, surrounded by coffee mugs and half finished LaCroix cans, complete with ink smudges and quite possibly stray confetti.
I’m crazy about helping other creative badasses on their own lettering adventure (teacher – remember?!) because I’ve already gotten a pretty good headstart and know just how rocky that road can feel when you’re doing it solo.
GLITTER & BOLD IS FUELD BY COFFEE AND COLOR, AND INFUSED WITH THESE CORE VALUES THROUGH AND THROUGH:
Stay in your magic and be you, bravely.
Celebrate everyday. Impromptu dance parties and week long birthdays are encouraged.
Treat each other like you do when you’re drunk in the bathroom. Shatter those ceilings, girlfriend!
Embrace your perfectly imperfect, badass self. Let that freak flag fly, whether its binging Doctor Who or picking up your PSL in yoga pants and Uggs (I, for the record, do all of these things).
