10 QUESTIONS WITH MODERN CALLIGRAPHY ARTIST MALORY TOSCANO
Hi, I'm Malory. When I got engaged to my now husband in December 2015, I decided to I was going to teach myself modern calligraphy so I could DIY all of our wedding decor. Thus started my obsession with everything hand lettering.
I am self-taught and after seeing the calligraphy craze at Target recently (it's literally on everything they have for sale), I thought, why not spread the knowledge so people can do this themselves!
In my non-calligraphy life, I am an advertising professional and photographer.hicago. You can learn more about her work here.
