Brush Calligraphy Workshops in Sacramento, California

Workshop announcement for Instagram 5-27-16

Well, hello there! It has been a while since I took a break from blogging/YouTubing.

While it has been quiet here on the blog, I have been avidly working on putting together more in-person workshops. These workshops are right here in my hometown, Sacramento, California. They are four-hours long and designed to give you a solid introduction to brush calligraphy. You can read more about my workshops here.

If you’re local or willing to travel, I would love to have you in class! There’s nothing like one-on-one, in-person instruction and live demonstrations.

And if you’re not close enough to join me this time, stay tuned. I’ll be heading to Los Angeles this fall and the Northern Virginia/DC area in December.

      Your brush calligraphy is beautifull and very inspiring. I’m located in Sherman Oaks, a suburb of Los Angeles. My store name is Presence Sherman Oaks! I’d love to take one of your classes!


      1. Hi Linda! I would love to meet and teach you! I’ll be in Monrovia the last weekend of October. I forgot if I asked you already – are you on my workshop mailing list? I will announce tickets real soon.

    Hi! I’m in the Phoenix area & would love to see you either come here or to Vegas. I recently took a calligraphy workshop from someone else & am sad to say how disappointing it was! I think your workshops sound much more in-depth and fun.


    1. Hi Sheri! I would absolutely love to go to Phoenix or Vegas. Hopefully sooner than later! It would be so awesome to meet and teach you. In the meantime, I hope my tutorials and videos help. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Is the PDF of the capital letters available? I know you’ve been busy but it’s been a long time.


    1. Hi Joyce! Yes, the capital letters PDF is available. I included it as part of my (free) starter guide that you can grab here: You receive the guide after signing up for my online course mailing list. 🙂

    How about Santa Cruz? There are plenty of artsy people here, it’s not far from Sacramento, and there are plenty of places to hold workshops!


    1. Ooo, I love Santa Cruz! I’d love some venue suggestions – send me an email at!

    I love your posts!! I’ve been doing a lot of pointed pen the last 6 months or so, but I’m discovering how awesome brush lettering is! One thing though, I can’t seem to find a post on how to do the comma dot! Am I just missing it? I see that its similar to the understroke and I watched the video from the ovals on how high to go up with them, but is there a post explaining how to do it itself?? Thanks!!


    1. Hi Riss! I don’t have a specific video/post on the commadot. But here’s what I’ll tell you: Keep the commadot on the INSIDE of your stroke. This will help ensure it doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb. Are you on Instagram? Tell me your IG handle, and I’ll try to tag you in some posts where I demonstrate the commadot.


    1. Oh boy! I’ll have to add OK to my workshop bucket list. 😉 Hope it happens soon!
