Hi, I'm Shelly Kim

Artist, Educator, Author, Podcaster, Dog Mom

I'm a self-taught lettering artist based in Los Angeles, CA. I have a strong passion for basically sharing everything I know about getting started with all things arts & crafts related.

When I first started this lettering journey, I had no idea what was going to happen. I just believed in why I started this hobby! I really had no idea about all the opportunities my love for Modern Brush Lettering was going to open up. This hobby, which has now transitioned into my full-time biz, has allowed me to understand myself better and appreciate the little things in life so much more. I have had the honor of working with so many different companies  who have showcased my lettering (& I still cannot believe it)!

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. ​

Discovering my love for lettering and creating art has changed my entire perspective on life. Lettering to me goes way beyond exploring my creativity. For me, it creates an open, positive, and free outlet that I would love for others to join in on with me.


Always remember to live your passion everyday and pursue those dreams you have. It’s going to take time and patience, and you have to make sure your heart and energy is 150% all in. Trust me, it is soooo worth it because your journey and strength will inspire other people too. This is what my lettering journey has proven & shown me. I had a “new purpose” in life all over again and I am loving everyday where I get to do lettering full-time now.

Never forget that, the more we support, share, and show each other compassion, we all win! Together, we can conquer anything! As you start your art journey, trust the process, never give up, & dream big! #communityovercompetition

Thank you so much for stopping by my page and a big shout out to all my followers! You are seriously amazing! 

Also, meet my dog, Max-- my new assistant! We adopted him back in July 2019 and have so much love for him!

P.S. I'm always interested in collaborating and working with others!
