Valerie Anne Bassett
I fell in love with letters when I was a child. Cursive hand writing was one of my favorite subjects in Elementary School. I am very sad to know that it is no longer being taught in grade school. Letter forms are graceful and there is nothing more meditative than doing Calligraphy. I work as an artist and oil painter and I work on my Calligraphy whenever time permits. I have studied with Suzanna Moore and a few other advanced letter artists over the last 30 years. I hope to continue learning and perfecting my letter forms. I teach beginner Italic and work as a freelance Calligrapher in MA.

Claire Carney-Griffin
I fell in love with the art of calligraphy while attending MassArt in 1982 and have pursued it since. After earning my BFA in design, I continued my studies in letter arts with Nancy Culmone, Ward Dunham, Reggie Ezell, Gerry Jackson Kerdock. The knowledge I gained from each of these artists has been invaluable. I find that I continue to learn and experience more with practice as well as sharing what I've learned with others.

Amy Chaney
I learned calligraphy in high school and have been in love with beautiful hand-lettering ever since. There is so much to celebrate in this life, and there is just something so special about hand-lettered messages. I am utterly convinced that a beautifully lettered envelope makes whatever is inside feel like a hug. A gorgeously scripted envelope says "hey, I love you" before anyone even has a chance to see what's inside. And what could be better than that!?!?

Megan Chapin
I have had an interest and affinity for hand-writing and calligraphy for as long as I can remember. When I was 12 I received my first calligraphy pen and started with formal training at the age of 18. There is always more to learn and perfect so the quest continues!
I primarily work with clients on their wedding or other special event because hand-lettering, whether funky or traditional, adds that extra special personal feeling that cannot be attained with a computer generated label.
I am a member of Style Me Pretty and the Boston Wedding Group.
Addressing envelopes, seating charts, place cards, invitation design, rubber stamps, etc.
Lettering styles vary from traditional to funky!
