I am the artist behind Letters By Shells and I discovered the act of creating art as a creative outlet from my desire to release stress from my full-time insurance job back in 2015.

I have made it a mission for my artwork to express love and positivity, and for it to inspire others to believe that anything in life is totally possible.

Through this beautiful art, I have now found a love for teaching, giving me the opportunity to teach lettering workshops all over the world, leading up to my newest creation and book, Digital Hand Lettering and Modern Calligraphy.

Never in a million years, did I ever think I would have the chance to create art on a daily basis, meet some amazing new friends along the way, and pursue this passion full-time. 

Also, meet my dog, Max. My new assistant! We adopted him back in July 2019! <3
