SCROLLING CALLIGRAPHY | inspires and encourages creativity through education and the art of calligraphy.
Hello! I’m thrilled that you are here and interested in services with Scrolling Calligraphy. My name is Claire and I am the artist behind the pen. I am excited to get to know you and to create something special for your wedding, special event, or business!
I have been an artist since birth (ha!) and haven't stopped creating since. I began my calligraphic art in 2017 immediately after I exited my first calligraphy class. From the moment I took the first "up stroke', I knew this was exactly what I needed to be doing with my life. Over the last few years, I have had the opportunity to create beautiful keepsakes for a number of brides (and grooms!) and have relished in the contrasting design process--there's always something new to learn and I love it! Additionally, I have had the opportunity to teach and extend my knowledge of this art form with the community.
When the pen isn't in my hand, a violin is. I have been playing the violin for nearly 30 years and I teach more than 25 students in the Seattle area; out of my home studio. I grew up in West Bend, WI, a city about 40 minutes north of Milwaukee. Yes, I love the Brewers, Spotted Cow, and CHEESE! :) I moved to Seattle in 2016 and absolutely love the incredibly diverse landscape of mountains, water, and city views. I also love coffee (lots and lots of coffee), reading, traveling, hiking, and snuggling my furry son, Wisco (named after my home state).
