Shelby is a self-taught calligrapher and painter specializing in custom wedding invitations and signage. After a winding path of working in the Milwaukee wedding industry, and designing her own wedding, she finally found her calling through stationery. Now, she helps couples celebrate their own unique love stories through their wedding invitations. When she's not designing, you can find this former dancer in yoga class, exploring her charming neighborhood of Wauwatosa, tackling the latest home-improvement project with her handy husband or camping in their renovated Sprinter van.

What past students have to say!

I tried online tutorials ONCE and it was not my cup of tea! I’m a busy person, so taking the time to go online and sit myself down to actually do it was hard. Attending this workshop was much more useful. You are putting yourself in a group with others and given the right material to use, while having a pro do everything from talking you through it, to helping your hand movements and posture—such an important part! I wish I could have Shelby with me every time I practice!

I was interested in Watercolor lettering, but needed a push to really get started. Since Shelby’s workshop, it’s my favorite calligraphy medium! Going to the in-person training, I was able to ask questions as they came up and Shelby did a great job going around to everyone to give feedback. I highly recommend this workshop whether you’re new to calligraphy or already practicing!
