Thanks for checking out my site! My name is Sherie and you might say I have an obsession with pens. I actually have a few obsessions...I'm a foodie and I love bags, baking, dogs, fonts/typography and as I mentioned before, pens.

 

Five years ago, I bought a calligraphy set and was talking to a lady about taking some classes. I had grand notions of learning to write birthday cards with beautiful swirling letters. Sadly, the set I bought would stay in its packaging for a long time.

 

It took moving to Texas and taking a calligraphy class at SMU to realize my passion for hand lettering. My instructor was Master Calligrapher Susie-Melissa Cherry, a 40 year veteran of the Calligraphy industry. She taught me everything (ok, maybe not everything) she knows about hand lettering calligraphy and just like that, I am inspired and truly enjoy what I am doing. .

 

So here we are. It took me a long time and a lot of coaxing from my friends to finally get to this point. Ink Allure is all about my passion for pens, paper and hand lettering. I hope you will send me an email or visit me at one of my digital addresses. It would be my genuine pleasure to help you with that special project that only hand written words can uplift from simply nice, to beautiful works of art.
