ABOUT

Hello! I’m Serena.
Doodler by day, scribbler by night.

 

Growing up, I was always given blank paper and crayons. No lines. No coloring books. I was given the gift of creativity and imagination without limits, which inspired me to become a serious alphabet doodler. My passion didn’t stop there. 

 

When I was nine, I begged for piano lessons, and when my parents obliged,
I embraced it. I was that weird kid who actually loved practicing. It wasn’t long before dance captured my affections, too. My commitment to the piano was fierce, but dancing competitively inspired my work ethic further. In the face of tortured muscles and patience, I practiced with clear intention, unwavering commitment, and faith. 

 

You could call it optimistic perseverance, or simply naiveté, but whatever you call it, that elbow grease helped me earn scholarships and two degrees: one in Advertising & Public Relations from the University of Central Florida and a degree in Music/Piano Performance from Rollins College. I was also honored to work as a professional dancer for the Walt Disney Company while in college.

 

To this day, I still practice all things with clear intention, unwavering commitment, and faith. With that said, my grand, audacious goal is to share that energy and light through my calligraphy work. Being born in Savannah, Georgia comes with rooted cultural etiquette, which always includes hand-written correspondence (my favorite). Pointed pen calligraphy requires the same patience and perseverance as the other art forms that I’ve studied. This, I love. I’m fortunate that my life experience, education, and passions have all brought me here to help add a little light, sparkle, and charm to you!  

 

Get in touch, and let's discuss how I may contribute to your dearest and most important life events!
