Art By Ames
Through inspiration of a friend, Amy starting dabbling in modern calligraphy in 2016. In 2017, she was preparing for my own wedding and did all the lettering for my special day. She then started creating lettering pieces for my friends and family for weddings, baby showers, bridal showers and home decor. In August 2018, she decided to turn her hobby into a side business - thus, Art by Ames was official born.
Amy now creates personalised cards, prints, journals, wooden signs and home decor with words that bring hope and joy. She believes that words have the power to lift a person's spirit and loves to use her artwork to make the world a brighter and better place
"Hi, I'm Amy and I work as a lawyer in my 9-5 job but I am a hand lettering artist whenever I can make the time. I've been a lover of words and fascinated by their power to evoke emotions (good and bad) for as long as I can remember so when I discovered hand lettering/modern calligraphy it was a natural fit to create words but in a beautiful way. I am passionate about sharing good new stories and lifting the spirit of others through encouraging words and meaningful dialogue - I am so thankful for the opportunity to do that through lettering. I love experimenting with writing on different surfaces (current love: chalkboards and glass) and just seeing the smiles on clients' faces when I produce something unique for them to take home with them. I hope that I can continue to use my skills to bring them hope and joy."
