Hi there, this is Ruth from Seniman Calligraphy and thank you so much for visiting my website!
I've been great with my hands for as long as I can remember. Drawing, painting, sketching, lettering, you name it and I'm most likely into it! I have a collection of high-school journals to prove it and a degree in Interior Architecture thanks to it.
Smash cut to my adult life. I got a little carried away with DIY on my own wedding. I made our wedding invite suite (with watercolor and acetone transfer), our dinner menu, and even took our own engagement portraits!
And it was fun!!!!!
Back then, my only regret was I had no idea how to do calligraphy with a dip pen. I drooled over them - still drooling, really. But those pens and gorgeous writings looked so intimidating!
Long story short, I finally took some time to learn how to use those scary nibs and immediately I was hooked. I got the calligraphy bug. I took the plunged and make an Instagram account to exclusively promote my calligraphy. I thought I'll be able to get a few gigs here and there, a little pocket money for something I love to do. But one thing lead to another, each project open a door to another one, and in less than a year I'm lucky enough to be featured in Style Me Pretty (2015) and (2016), Cottage Hills Magazine (2015), Weddings Sparrow (2015), Magnolia Rouge(2015), Inside Weddings (2015), and many more. So I decided to be fully committed in calligraphy.
Now I ran my calligraphy studio from our tiny loft in Downtown Los Angeles; cranking out invitation suites, mailing those vow books all over the country, and hosting calligraphy workshops in our humble apartment.
Considering I can't turn back the time, the least I can do is make sure that future brides have elegant calligraphy on their very special day. I will try to accommodate your needs, and more importantly, your budget!
Drop me a line so I can help you with your calligraphy needs!
