Hey, I’m Becca. I’m a modern calligraphy do-er and teacher from Ottawa, Ontario- and right now, I’m traveling the world meeting my students in real life!
I’m really into ice cream for breakfast (though I’m not going to turn it down at other times of the day), bad puns and some good old Canadian ice hockey. I’m also fully obsessed with my dog, which is a pretty cliche thing to say in an “about” section… but… idowhatiwant! Awww heck it- here’s a photo of her, too. You’re welcome!
I have a background in Interior Design. I started learning calligraphy in 2015 while I was working in project management and felt like I needed a creative outlet (and hello, de-stresser!)
Spoiler: I got completely obsessed.
A little while later, I discovered that my real passion was in teaching others how to do calligraphy, too… and since the internet is pretty rad, I was able to start teaching students all around the world through a series of workbooks and online tutorials.
To make a loooong story short, I quit my job. And now I get to do and teach calligraphy full-time (aka I get to stay in my pyjamas most days! It’s pretty cool.)
I wasn’t lying when I said I really love teaching people how to do calligraphy. And I also love making it easy, relaxing and fun. If you’re not enjoying learning, and it’s just another chore? Then I’ve failed you as a teacher.
If you wanna learn with me, I’d be happy to have you.
(Though, if you’re not a fan of Dad jokes, you may want to find another teacher!)
Here’s a little peek into what I do, in case you’re still like “wtf does doing and teaching calligraphy even mean?”Basically, I write on pretty stuff for clients, and I teach others how they can do that, too! Check it out.
