Art has always been in my life in different shapes and forms. One of my favorite childhood memories was spending time in the backyard with a stack of paper and pencil crayons. Fast forward to adulthood, it become a different kind of art via digital. I became a professional wedding photographer for the last seven years under the name Debbie Wong Photography. Traditional art didn’t emerge into my life until the last four years. I picked up watercolor and painted custom nursery illustrations for my daughters' rooms, and I fell in love how pretty watercolor is.
I discovered calligraphy less than two years ago and wish I discovered this sooner! I offer both traditional and modern calligraphy styles. I've had the privilege of learning from renowned calligraphers including Master Penwoman Harvest Crittenden, Heather Held, Kathy Milici, F Phyllis Macaluso and YoungHae Chung. I'm eternally grateful to study under their tutelage.
So why am I offering watercolor and calligraphy? If I could go back in time, I would love to create my own unique wedding stationery, incorporate the wedding theme, colors, with calligraphy. Since the time machine still hasn't been invented, I want to help the couples design their bespoke invitations and incorporate calligraphy. In a fast paced digital world where we constantly type on computers and phones, we've lost the handwritten aspect. My clients have told me their guests were blown away and felt special because they received the wedding invitations in an envelope with beautiful hand addressed calligraphy. Doing on-site calligraphy for my corporate fashion client Burberry was amazing and I do feel the shoppers' joy when I hand them that custom thank you card or note for their loved ones.
Please drop me a line so I can help with your calligraphy needs on envelopes, day of wedding details, or a bespoke wedding invitation suite!
