curated workshops in Philadelphia
I’ve been my tail off on a side project with my friend Anna and after months of work, we now have an official LLC, site and have launch our first set of classes. It’s been such a whirlwind, especially while still building Ink + Mortar, and I feel blessed to have a great partner who I collaborate so well with.
We are building our brand slowly and have been putting small pieces together as we also develop workshops for the Philadelphia area. Below is a sample of what we’re working on.
And if you’re in the Philly area and are interested in joining us for our calligraphy workshops or future events, check out newoldfshnd.com!
I’ve been blogging for a long time now. I started a blog with friends from college called The Donut Project in 2008, and left to focus on my own personal blog in 2010. I took a break last year from my personal blog to focus on my business, but in that time realized how important my blogging had been to my business. With the launch of a new studio and new site, my blog resurfaces and I look forward to sharing much more about my first year of business and life as it happens.
And if you’d like to see where I come from, I’ve left my previous blog up with all my old posts. It’s such a great reminder of where I’ve come from! Take a look at my past posts on Remnants.
I’m excited to share some recent work I did for Haute Gali, a fashion brand that launched this month.

I loved how these illustrations turned out for the Anthro Newsletter this month. I had so much fun inking the outlines and coloring the beat especially. Below you can see them in action in the email newsletter:
I designed a page for the engagement section for BHLDN, Anthropologie’s wedding brand, and I illustrated some of the elements to add some pop to the newspaper-style page. I especially love how the ring turned out!
I’ve been working with a North Carolina church, St. Pius the Tenth, on their campaign to raise money for adding buildings for their school and parish. It’s been such a great project and working on the logos and branding has been one of my favorite parts.
The top logo is for the campaign and appears on all the promotional materials. The small branches are drawn in charcoal and appear in larger areas on the rest of the campaign. The second logo is a proposed logo for the church itself, which is now expanding to have “school” added to the logo. I can’t wait to share the rest of the project soon!
I’m thrilled to finally share the story I worked on with Alexis Siemons for the July issue of Tea Magazine. Alexis developed the recipes for this summer picnic and together using my collection of serving plates and fabrics, we styled the images and I photographed them.
