Custom Certificate Roses for a rosarian. This commission involved creating a custom certificate to reflect the recipient's accomplishments.
Watercolor and gold leaf were used to illustrate the arch of heritage roses.
Each award is designed to reflect the importance of the event. Using diamond shapes in gold leaf instead of the traditional squares for the decorative versals provided a more contemporary style for this hand lettered award.
Baptism Certificate A single pink rosebud and contrasting colors kept this baptism certificate a timeless piece to display for this precious little girl.
All calligraphy is by hand.
Sometimes a simple but formal design is the appropriate style for a certificate of appreciation.
All certificates are completely hand lettered.
Historic Charter The small photo only shows a portion of this 800 word charter that needed to be replaced. Using both raised and flat gold leaf applied by hand enhanced this historic presentation.

This was based on the historical folk art design and completely hand lettered and painted. The heavy paper was "antiqued" using layers of watercolor prior to lettering.
The engagement certificate you artistically crafted for our daughter's party provided the highlight of the event. Our daughter told us it was the "single exciting memory of the evening." It was rewarding to work with you. The quality of your art and skill spoke for itself and was enjoyed by all.
Everybody is so pleased with the certificate. It is beautiful! The framer mentioned they have seen a lot of calligraphy pass through and yours "is exceptional." Thank you for the beautiful, prompt work. I will definitely recommend you. It has been a pleasure.
