I started a business coaching series this week and man, my whole outlook has changed. I’ve always struggled with trying, wanting, to be both an artist and an entrepreneur and I’ve never heard anyone talk about the two as I see them, different. Until this week when someone who I exponentially admire, did. There’s so many different avenues this topic could cover and I would love to hear your thoughts on the differences between the two. But here’s my conclusion. Artists- dedicated, pride themselves on the title artists, care about creating quality pieces for people who truly appreciate their art. Entrepreneurs, they care about changing the world!

Fluffy place cards comin' at ya! Love how watercolour sits nicely on this handmade paper. Hot tip: When placing your order for wedding invitations, it's always best to include your day-of items (such as place cards, menus, and table numbers) in your stationery budget! With your budget in mind, your calligrapher will be able to recommend quality materials and tie in your day-of items to your invitation suite.😉 ⠀
Lighting is everything, isn’t it? I only use gold ink on my preserved lemon leaves because it’s the perfect balance with the dark green leaves. It really makes the names pop! 🌿💛 Though having a professional photographer take the shot definitely helps too. 😉 Thank you @hotmetalstudio
for the amazing capture!
Natural beauty with this flower wall escort card display! A touch of organic elegance welcoming guests to the reception dinner.

Was anyone able to guess the celebrity before I finished writing the name? 😃 Out of all the names I wrote for this Dom Pérignon dinner, this was the one I was MOST excited about 😆 I love her character in Fresh Off the Boat and I’ve seen Crazy Rich Asians like seventeen times already. And then I saw her in a Beyoncé video and almost squealed cause she looked so badass. 😎 @constancewu
- keep kicking ass girl!! 💕
Which famous name would YOU be most excited to calligraphy? ✍️
Busy day of backing these beauties💕
Acrylic escort cards are so sweet and versatile - can’t wait to make more of these!
Also super stoked to try my hand at painting the backs of some of these - what do you guys think? Any ideas on color schemes? Let me know below 🙈👇🏼
Patiently waiting for orders so I can write on these bad boys all day and avoid my law school responsibilities forever 😂🙈
Serious wedding vibes over here 🖤
Excited to announce that I’ll have these bad boys along with acrylic escort cards available soon in my Etsy shop!
I’ll also have some samples available at my art show on the 21st. Visit rawartists.org/dcbrushesandstrokes to purchase your tickets! You’ll receive a free painting from yours truly ✨
