Hi there & welcome to my little corner of the internet!

I’m Loren, an Atlanta based calligrapher by night and an 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 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 with 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
