Hello! I'm Kate.
I’m a calligrapher, stationary designer and full-time momma based in the East S.F. Bay Area. I run The Written Script out of my home while my toddler runs circles around me, and I wouldn’t change a thing!
Before my love for calligraphy developed, I worked as an on-site wedding planner for Hotels and a Winery. I loved working behind the scenes with vendors, the catering team, and the wedding couple to make events come to life. I always loved peeking in on events to admire the creativity of the seating charts, signage, and paper goods. So in 2014 I decided to take a calligraphy class on a whim. I was hooked! (Even though looking back I was oh-so-bad). After months and months of practicing, I slowly started to develop my own style and love for this art form. Three years later I finally took the plunge and made my business official, creating The Written Script website and Instagram page. Since then, I have dabbled with various mediums, learned new styles, and have deepened my skill and knowledge of the art of calligraphy and lettering.
When I’m not sprawled out with ink and markers on the kitchen table, you can find me eating at trendy restaurants (the vibe is everything!), scouting out the best donuts, or traveling up and down the California coast with my husband and one year old.
I never had great handwriting (calligraphy is a learned skill!)
I drink decaf coffee (I know, I know. I hope we can still be friends).
In high school, I was 2nd in the state of New Jersey for high jump (Whaaa Whaaat!...My 5'9" height came in handy)
