I always love working with Karen of Sunday Suppers and it’s a real pleasure to see the final results after providing her with calligraphy goods for one of her special Sunday gatherings.
For this supper, she hosted Béa Peltre of La Tartine Gourmande, who led the group in preparation of a summer dinner: Verrines of Fresh Crab, Apple, and Avocado with Lime and Ginger; Pea Risotto with Grilled Prosciutto, and Basil Oil; and Strawberry Blanc Manger en Verrines with its Strawberry Salad & Brown Butter Pistachio Financier.
The gorgeous floral arrangements were done by Nicolette Camille. I really like how she used cherries or garlic scapes as a part of the place setting.
I used soft white Arturo paper for its luxurious texture and torn edges. I wrote in black ink the place cards and thank you notes that were tucked inside vintage berry baskets holding some beautiful market treats.
We teamed up with Project Wedding this past April for a wedding shoot in Malibu. The full gallery is now on view at Project Wedding. It’s a real couple, Aude and Gilles, who worked with us to stage this beautiful Morrocan-inspired scene.
Here a few highlights of my contributions. I created menus, vows, table numbers and place cards that incorporated watercolor frames and designs.
Felt & Wire, the blog and shop run by the esteemed Mohawk Fine Papers, invited me to be featured this week in a post about my love letter transcription service. They were wonderful to work with and I appreciated a reason to review some of my favorite letters from clients past.

Can’t quite describe how pumped I am about this. Real Simple magazine included the Paperfinger custom address stamp in their wedding gift guide of their June issue, which is just beginning to reach newstands. I love this magazine and am so thrilled to have this product featured.

It was really fun to see my clients’ wedding posted to Style Me Pretty last week! Michelle and Josh were married last September at The Hill in Livingston, upstate New York. I had the pleasure of designing their save the dates and invitations, pictured below. For more photos of the invitations, you can see my earlier post.
The beautiful and joyous gallery of photographs were taken by Dave Robbins.
I must preface this with a proper OMG.
Early this January, I was cast as the calligrapher/illustrator for this new Paper Mate pen commercial that starts airing today in advance of the Academy Awards. It’s only 12 seconds but you’ll catch of glimpse of me sketching in the middle of the paparazzi crowd – and then all the hand shots that follow are of me writing. 12 seconds of prime time fame!
