She creates hand lettered pieces that tell a story and add a personal and unique touch. She loves being able to teach others how to use the skill of hand lettering to create their own works of art!

Jenny and her husband, Richard, live in Lehi and have four children. Connect with Jen on Instagram!
What will we be doing in the workshop? This workshop is designed for beginners and will cover the basics of working with brush markers, basic calligraphy strokes, as well as faux calligraphy. You’ll learn how to develop your own lettering style so you can create beautiful tags, cards, envelopes etc. You will receive small and large tip markers, and a workbook with practice sheets and tracing pages. You will also go over large-scale lettering so you can letter beautiful quotes at home on your Rettel roller. This is a skill you can use daily and the more you practice, the better you will get.
