I'm Shinah - a whiskey-loving, curse-word slinging, Harvard-trained former corporate attorney who left everything behind to find my passion. And, who knew?! That passion is modern calligraphy and I'm pretty damn good at it.
If you had told me five years ago that I would be making a living drawing pretty words and going to art stores, I would have laughed in disbelief.... and then sighed with yearning.
Now, I'm doing what I love, but I had to push through a lot of fear and self-doubt to get here. And that's what makes me a great designer and an even better teacher. I'm not afraid to dig deep and do things a little differently. I'm also a perfectionist and people-pleaser, which isn't good for my sleep schedule but is GREAT for my clients ;)
If you like what you see here, hit me up! I'd love to hear from you.
I've had the pleasure of working with clients like Disney, Nordstrom, David Yurman and Dogeared Jewelry, so you can rest assured that my skills are legit. And if you couldn't tell already, I'm pretty fun to work with =)
So what do you have on your mind? Wedding envelopes, a brand new logo, on-site lettering or calligraphy classes?
