Calligraphy on a cup!

These photos show the steps I used to create this cup for my ‘secret pal’ in my Guild. I used Sharpie oil based pens in primary colors to stipple around the letters and inside the image of the pen. After it dried I carefully removed the paper and then baked the cup at 350 for 30-45 min.

Centering Certificates

Centering Certificates

First I lettered the words, then folded them to find the center. This way it shows me where to begin the line to center them in that line. This was done recently for the Sherlock Holmes Society who hold their yearly meeting in NY in January.

Christmas Ornaments

Christmas Ornaments

I lettered 277 glass ornaments and added artwork for a client’s Christmas Candlelight Ceremonies. Lots of fun!

I can do the same for you! Let me know if you need a gift for a new baby, a birthday, Valentine’s Day or any special occasion. Prices vary depending on the ornament, its size and the complexity of the artwork. Contact me for prices.

Merry Christmas!

Certificates for a great cause and weekend


I was asked to do 150 certificates for a children’s bereavement weekend retreat. “Of Course”, I said. I decided to use gold to really make their names stand out for the good they do to volunteer their time for this wonderful cause.

Banner for the cards suitcase


I utilized pieces from my daughter’s wedding invitation to make this banner for the suitcase which contained the cards guests brought. I drew each letter and cut them out for placing on the pennants.
