OFFICE HOURS: JANE
Design & Creativity
Having a clear path since I was 12 led me to a degree in art in college as well as moving to Florence, Italy to study the masters. Being exposed to architecture, textiles, and the mere history of the city has inadvertently shaped and influenced what I produce. My work evokes flourishing, florals, and the decorative details seen and sometimes so faint in the old world paintings and sculptures that we see admire. I don’t consider myself an artist that only dabbles in one medium but am a multi-disciplinary artist & designer. In more recent years, my focus and messaging is best seen in lettering, calligraphy, and illustrations.
During my years working for clients in the wedding industry, I naturally leaned in on learning calligraphy and have been taught by some incredible instructors in copperplate calligraphy, including Former White House Chief Calligrapher, Pat Blair. By combining my skills as a traditional artist & self-taught graphic designer, I’ve formed my clients stories around merging the old and the new.
Projects at Red Letter Day range from custom pieces to murals to live events. Being a multi-disciplinary studio means that I have a wide net of experience in different mediums from 2D to 3D. The usage of each piece is dependent on communicating the client’s story to the masses. There’s no limit to the possibility that can be created. Along with client work, I also teach watercolor workshops throughout the US as well as donate my time once a month to project like A Love Language Project to paint protest murals throughout the city of LA.
