I was in a very dark place when creativity, along with my faith and LOTS of prayer, brought me out of depression, anxiety and panic attacks.

Hi! I’m Christie and I teach hand lettering. I never planned to teach lettering. I just lettered for therapy until one day a friend asked if I would teach a class. I had to really pray about it because my anxiety was just starting to subside. And who was I to teach lettering?

I wasn’t an expert by any means. (I’m still not.)

It was never on the radar, but God knew. He knew that I needed to share my passion with the world. By the world, I mean you... someone who may be across the globe but shares my love of creativity and faith.

When God opens doors….HE opens doors! I went from that one little class in my home to teaching hundreds in person and online. I’ve published multiple lettering books and traveled to speak and teach lettering. And today I have a thriving online business thanks to Him and to you.

I believe God allowed me to be in darkness so I one day could shine my light for Him. I’m not the best at it, but am working on it everyday and encouraging you to do it too!

I want to invite you to join me on this journey! You can learn more about being involved in spreading light to others through hand lettering here.

“Let your light shine before others, so they can see your good deeds and glorify your Father in  heaven.”
