Tania is a Gold Coast-based calligrapher, chalk artist and signpainter. Determined to overcome her left-handed, southpaw beginnings, she first picked up her mother’s right-handed calligraphy pens when she was nine, and has loved handlettering ever since. This passion grew stronger during her time at Griffith University’s Queensland College of Art studying graphic design, lettering on marble, wood, skin, walls, suitcases and fences (basically anything that doesn’t move).
She now spends her time designing beautiful signage for Queensland weddings & events, and conducting creative lettering workshops, most recently at the University of the Sunshine Coast. Tania invites anyone with a love of the handwritten word and beautiful paper to come along and delve into the art of watercolour lettering.
