    Hi Sharisse! Your blog looks is so inspirational and I can’t wait to get started! But watching your videos where your handlettering is so absolutely beautiful, I can’t help but wonder whether I need to be artistic to really be good at this and create beautiful artwork like yours? Do you have an artistic background? Thank you! xx

    Like

    1. Hi Karmen! I don’t have any formal training in the arts or design. I’ve simply enjoyed doodling growing up and making posters and homemade cards. Truthfully, I believe everyone has an artistic side – it just needs the right environment and tools to come out! Focus on one small aspect at a time. For most people, that means building control of the brush calligraphy pen and learning how to use it. Once you get more comfortable with it, you’ll find more confidence in creating letters, stroke by stroke. Hope this helps you! And always aim for progress, not perfection.
