Hi, my name is Tamara Swinford and I am a calligrapher and hand-lettering artist living in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. I love writing in cursive. For me it is relaxing and fun. I also love pretty stationary and pens and love to use my calligraphy skills to create beautiful and personalized work for my clients. I think that calligraphy is beautiful and useful. It can be used for many things. From wedding invitations to signs that have a special quote on them for your living room.
I dove in to calligraphy several years ago when I joined my local calligraphy guild and have since then taken several specialized classes to hone my skills. I didn’t really have any plans to do anything with this skill except to write scriptures and poems – and to just be creative with my new found skill but I wanted more. I wanted to provide my services to clients that needed something personalized
I would love to help you with your next event or project. I have done everything from writing on mirrors for weddings to writing a saying on a canvas and names on a birthday sign for customers. No project is too small.
I am currently into folk art and would love to be able to create art like that. I especially like the Primitive American pieces.
I love to learn new skills and in my down-time I am usually watching another skillshare class to see what else I can learn.
Please let me know if I can help you out with any of your handwritten projects. I would love to provide my helping hands on your next project.
