In today's digital environment of emails and text messages, our brains are overloaded with notifications, and addicted to little hits of dopamine as we scroll through social media. 

When I learned that handwriting has the same effect as meditation, I couldn’t wait to put down my phone and pick up a pen - and I hope you will, too. 

Sending handwritten notes and invitations really shows you care. Whether you’re getting married, want to impress your boss, use this skill for bullet-journaling, or to write letters to your friends and family, this online class will help you collect your thoughts, and learn how to write beautifully and with intention.

What we'll cover:

  • Brief history of Copperplate, its tools, and characteristics
  • Setting up your practice for success
  • Basic letterforms and component strokes
  • Lowercase and uppercase alphabet
  • Numbers and punctuation
  • Critiquing your own work & Troubleshooting

and receive two months of free Skillshare membership, or sign up for my email updates to get first dibs on in-person workshop dates. 

For more information, tutorials, and events, check out, where I write to educate, inspire, and bring together a community of lettering, calligraphy, and handwriting enthusiasts. 


I am thrilled that over 250 students have spent over 10,000 minutes watching and learning from my Skillshare class. Some students have asked for an additional resource that will allow them to trace letters and help accelerate their learning and muscle memory in that way. I'm happy to offer this resource now in the form of an 18-page printable PDF for your personal practice use.

A little more about me: born and raised in Germany, I have lived and worked in Scotland, England, Spain, the Canary Islands, Mexico, and Texas, before moving to New York City. I'm a Myers-Briggs Master Practitioner (ENFJ), and I have changed careers from Leadership Development and Executive Coaching to Lettering and Calligraphy since 2015. I feel strongly about the benefits of handwriting and finding a better balance between online and offline living, and I'm excited to share that with you on my blog and hosting monthly events.  

So for now, just pick up a pen, and happy writing!
