Finally got around to taking down (well, actually just erasing) the Christmas "graffiti" I had done on the almost-black family room wall. But then it looked kind of empty, so I decided to kick off the next holiday with some more doodling. Though I have neither the time nor the talent to "chalk up" like the amazing Dana Tanamachi, I find her work inspiring and a whole bunch of fun! Check out her time-lapse videos here!
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.
