Shortly after attending the Spencerian Saga for the first time I went to visit my son in Maine, and stayed at a lovely B & B called "Among the Lakes". There was a guest book in the great room so I couldn't resist taking pen and ink to practice what I had learned. Imagine my surprise when I went back to their site to try to book another stay, and my entry was featured under "What Our Guests Say"!
As a professional lettering artist, I relish the variety of projects, venues, styles and media I experience every day. From commercial chalkboards, to illuminated manuscripts, to events providing onsite personalization with calligraphy and engraving, I enjoy bringing beauty to the world, one letter at a time!
"Mil Plumas" is Spanish for "a thousand pens" or "a thousand quills", and is also a nod to my late grandmother who was a writer named, oddly enough, Mildred Pluma.
