I always loved the printed word and loved to draw. I had taken calligraphy classes locally and it was joyous to me; so I started to develop a line of calligraphy note cards. But they needed something in order to have some pizzazz. I saw a design that had a pressed flower and oh yay, I thought; I can do so much with that. Having studied botany in pharmacy school, an interest in plants and flowers was present; so it was a natural to identify and work with these wonderful flowers that I had pressed.
My business, QuilliGraphy was started in 1997 and I had developed over 100 designs which I wholesaled and sold on line on my website. Presently I have 160+ designs.
QuilliGraphy's mission is to use natural materials to create art that stimulates the mind, validates the spirit, and celebrates the universe. It celebrates life and beauty. QuilliGraphy is a socially conscious business, contributing to local art, local events, libraries and breast cancer research and greyhound rescue and the American Association of University Women.
