I’m Loren, an Atlanta based calligrapher by night and a former IT Professional in the corporate world by day.
This is how it began…
It all began with my fascination with “pretty handwriting and letters” as a child which continued throughout my adult years. That fascination continued to follow me throughout my adult years, and I decided to act on it in 2014. One summer day, as I was brainstorming a new hobby to adopt, I ran the idea of calligraphy by a close friend and shared that I had always wanted to try my hand at calligraphy. She immediately encouraged me to go for it. Shortly after, I began to do research on the proper tools and found a few videos to grasp the basics. I practiced day after day and I began to share my progress on social media. Friends were impressed by my “hobby” and started to ask for calligraphy. One service led to a number of referrals and the rest is history. I was only hoping to gain a new hobby but, I have found my passion, freedom, and my happy place within the art of calligraphy. Let’s just say that I got more than what I bargained for.
I’m doing what I love…
Captivating Calligraphy has been, fulfilling and rewarding because I am doing what I love to do. I am a member of the Atlanta Calligraphy Guild (FOTA) and The International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting. As much as I love spending hours perfecting my craft and completing orders, I enjoy actually meeting and connecting with my clients even more! There is just something special about taking the time to sit and get to know the person I have the privilege of working with.
Captivating Calligraphy promotes healthy marriages…
Through calligraphy I have discovered that I also have a huge passion for Godly and healthy marriages. I know how it is to become so consumed with wedding planning, that it overshadows your focus on the marriage. Through a stress-free client experience, one of my goals is to help you check off one of the biggest items off of your wedding to-do list so that you can put more of your time and energy into preparing for your marriage.
Away from the pen…
On a personal note, when I am not doing calligraphy, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband and daughter, whether we’re on the go or enjoying a quiet evening at home watching Netflix. I am also an active member at our church where I serve alongside with my husband as Directors of the Creative Arts & Media Team.
Through my work and relationships with clients, I hope to inspire others to live out their dreams…and just go for it! I believe that everyone should pursue their passions and purpose in life.
I would love to get to know you! Feel free to drop me a note.
