About Sarah

Beautiful writing has been a passion and hobby of mine since childhood. Studying art at James Madison University and the courses that led to my Master's Degree from Virginia Commonwealth University gave me a foundation in design that I use in all my art work.

After designing and addressing my best friend's wedding invitations in 1989, I was encouraged to offer my calligraphy services to others. My business grew during the time I stopped teaching art full time in order to be at home with my young children. Just like the children that I taught, I always saved scraps of ribbon, paper, lace, and other odds and ends. Inspired by my students' spontaneous artwork, I began creating collage designs for greeting cards and adding favorite quotes in calligraphy. The cards have been sold in shops in Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina. I also create, exhibit and sell torn paper watercolor collages and acrylic paintings that incorporate stitching and collage. Currently I live and work as a middle school art teacher in the Baltimore area.

I enjoy helping to make the celebration of a new baby, a new marriage, or any event more special with unique calligraphy and collage artwork.
