Once upon a time, there was a ravishingly beautiful Young Maiden who traveled abroad to England to study for a year. Unbeknownst to her, there was a very dashing and intelligent Young Man who had simultaneously ventured to Spain and France to further his studies.
It came upon a day that both made the trek to London to witness the premiere of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. You see, they were both great fans.
As Stewart stood in the relentless cold and rain, straining for a glimpse of the famous cast, his eyes chanced to fall upon a most stunning image. Out of the mist emerged the luminous face of the Fair Lady Kristen.
Time stood still. Magic Happened. The crowd parted, making the path of Destiny open to only the two of them. The spell was cast, and Stewart was forever to remain entranced by her.
But that spell also spun its web to encompass The Fair Maiden. For to her, in that split second, her Knight in Shining Armour, the one she had been waiting for her whole life, came into view.
She was inexorably drawn to him, and he was helplessly drawn to her.
All the Wizards in the all the Worlds could never separate them from that day forward, for their souls had become one.
And they lived Magically Ever After…

Welcome to my new blog. I am just getting started with it, but wanted you to be in on the ground floor.
I am a professional calligrapher, born and bred right here in Raleigh.
And just like I love Raleigh, I also love lettering and writing. So, why not put the two artistic avenues together?
I will soon be offering to tell your unique Fairytale, flourishing not only with the calligraphic pen but with words also.
Pictured above is my pencil sketch that I worked on this afternoon. Next will come the watercolored finished piece. I am thinking it will probably be the header for this blog as well as used on my business cards.
Has a dream come true for you? Would you like it told in a whimsical, fairytale way with beautiful lettering? How did The Bride meet The Groom? This could be a keepsake handed down from you to your children. You could have the story of your child's birth as a lovely piece of art.
Start thinking of which dream came true for you. And then let me tell it...Once upon a time...
