Always more comfortable with math, science, and all things technical, I decided to go outside of my comfort zone after college and pursue something creative. I picked up a camera and four years later, found myself with a range of equipment and photographing professionally.
Soon though, I burnt out and photographed my last job in 2012.
I was lost after that. What had consumed nearly a decade of my life was suddenly gone. I toyed with pursuing a variety of professions: attorney, nursing, social work – none of it fit. One day, my husband picked up a catalog on design and nothing felt more right.
I started taking design classes at UCLA and fell in love with typography and lettering. I scoured the internet for books and tutorials on hand lettering but found nothing truly instructional. After reading Sean McCabe’s blog post on learning hand lettering, I decided I will have to just practice.
Here is the beginning of my journey. With a little dash of confidence and a lot of hard work, I think I can get there.
