Hi, I'm Allie. I'm a lettering artist and designer in Chicago. I grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountain region of Virginia, where I also graduated from the Fine Arts program at Mary Baldwin College. My background in museums and letter writing (mostly my time working at Smithsonian's National Postal Museum and a few enduring pen pal relationships) led me to become obsessive about creating beautiful objects of communication, fine art and epistolary.
One of my favorite things to do is work with couples in creating custom heirloom wedding paper goods, telling the story of their love in paper form. I love to incorporate personal details that can range widely from the city where you met, your grandmother's earrings, the flowers you'll use at your wedding, or a mutual love for old sailing ships.
I also recently released a new collection of semi-custom invitation suites for weddings and events that require a bit less time and cost than completely custom situations. Regardless of what you have in mind, I can't wait to hear from you.
