Hello from North Carolina!
« on: January 12, 2021, 02:40:43 PM »
My name is Ashley, and I was born, raised, and currently reside in North Carolina.  I received my undergraduate degree in Economics and Political Science in 2003 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Tar Heels!).  I then obtained my J.D. from Campbell University's Norman A. Wiggins School of Law, and started practicing law in 2009.  I currently practice solely in the field of consumer bankruptcy.  I am married, and my husband and I have an almost 5-year-old daughter. 

I have been obsessed with handwriting ever since I was little, so it was only natural that I gravitated toward calligraphy.  I just began learning calligraphy in September, 2020, and I am in the midst of courses with Becca Courtice of The Happy Ever Crafter, learning modern calligraphy with both pointed pen and brush pens.  For my next steps, I want to become proficient in copperplate, and love to ultimately earn a little cash on the side addressing wedding envelopes.  Fun fact:  I am left-handed! 

I look forward to learning a multitude of information from this forum, and hope to provide meaningful contributions!

Welcome Ashley,
There is an entire board dedicated to lefties so be sure to check that out! Lots of good tips. Also, we have some good tutorials for Copperplate. I highly recommend anyone serious about learning Engrosserís Script / Copperplate check out Nina Tran @anintran on Instagram and if possible, take a workshop from her.
Have fun!  :D

Welcome, Ashley. Younghae from Logos calligraphy is a left-handed instructor that offers on-line courses. She would also be a good option for you. Have fun on your journey. :D
