my name is Irene!
Let me share a quick story with you on how I ended up discovering my superpower of live calligraphy and how I use it to connect and impact people.
Back in 2016, I was sitting with a friend at the food court of my local shopping mall. She had asked me to engrave on some ornaments and I thought, "Ok, that sounds like fun!" It wasn't even 5 minutes past, before our table started drawing a crowd. Strangers were stopping to watch me engrave. They asked me questions like: What was I doing? How was I doing that? and the best ones were "That is SO cool!"
In 2018, I got my first big gig working with L'Oreal Luxe at their private launch party. It was an insane party with live music, entertainers, tarot readers, and so many more. My job that evening, was to personalize tea cups. It was a huge success. It was right then and there that I knew this was something I had to do.
Over the last 5 years, my love for expressing emotions through art continues to challenge me to provide one-of-a-kind products and memorable experiences. I love being able to witness the connections that happen between total strangers, and how my calligraphy can bring people so much joy and make them feel truly special.
If you share my love of connection and unique experiences, I would love to work with you! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let's get brainstorming for your event!
