My name is Jessica KC. I was born and raised on the island of O'ahu, Hawaii, where I spent my childhood, teenage, and young adult years engulfed in artistic expression in one form or another, basking outdoors, surrounded by nature, and fortunate enough to live on a beautiful ocean-view mountainside not but a 20 minute drive to the beach. I honor my connection with nature as the driving force behind my creativity and adaptability.
Since my early years in elementary school, I had been a lover of hand lettering: I had numerous composition notebooks filled with doodles, script and block lettering, and even received my first calligraphy kit when I was in the 3rd grade. I even once had a psychic reading in which I was told that I was a Scribe in a past life (without them knowing I did lettering, which was fun!)
I made the big leap to New York City in 2008 to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology. A series of fortunate events led to the creation of a design blog in early 2012, which eventually opened the pathway towards a return to my passion and a space to showcase my love of calligraphy and hand lettering. I have had the privilege to work with a variety of talented bloggers, businesses and clients, including: L'Oréal, Image Publications (Dublin), Domino Magazine, West Elm, and Calm.com.
I seek to experience harmony, connecting to nature, and living with passion and purpose. I love animals, matcha green tea lattes, crystals, and connecting to nature. I'm also into spirituality, the supernatural, super weird, and anything that expands my mind.
I currently live in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, but will always dream of tropical Hawaiian winds.
