My sweetheart wrote a poem about a year ago and I wanted to have it captured in calligraphy. Besides sending the poem to Mike I had (rather clumsily) asked if he could add “some sort of border”. I am not an artist. The poem was written in the Himalayas. I’m not exactly sure how Mike did it but somehow the border perfectly captured the essence of the magic in the poem, and the setting. It’s intended to be a Christmas present. I just took delivery of Mike’s work today. I couldn’t be happier. She’ll love the piece. Mike did a beautiful job.

I had Mike do some calligraphy on picture frames for a bridal shower I am throwing. He was very responsive, well priced and the frames are beautiful. Thanks!

WAY WOW!!!! I expect calligraphy to have the wow factor. Mike's aesthetic sense turned a WOW book dedication into WAY WOW because of the the font, color and size he chose. I expected beautiful, but the work was, I swear, jaw dropping. The 3 books are being given to children and the nature of the books is that I hope they have them into their adulthood. The gorgeous inscription is sure to convey to the kiddos this is a special gift and, when they are adults, the importance of the words will still resonate. I should add that Mike had a very quick turn around. He accepted my "drop off" within hours of contacting him.

Mike was quick to respond and open to taking on my project! He provided samples for approval prior to beginning and was very willing to incorporate minor adjustments. I will definitely reach out to him again for any calligraphy needs!
