Hi, I’m Dawn Nicole!
I’m Dawn, and I create products and resources for busy creatives who want to learn hand-lettering and modern brush calligraphy.
I can help you rock the art of lettering and brush calligraphy while sprinkling in a little creative fun and a lot of inspiration without the overwhelm of figuring out how to learn it on your own. If you can commit to as little as 10-15 minutes a day, you can learn this fabulous artform!
You may have seen my lettering and artwork in Hobby Lobby, TJ Maxx, and the Silhouette Design Store. One of my favorite projects to date was designing a coloring book-style Valentine’s Day doughnut box for Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.
EIGHT RANDOM Facts About Me
I’m friendly, so people are always surprised to find out I’m an extreme introvert and completely content to hang out by myself. My homebody tendencies borderline on hermit.
I love kindness, coffee, ampersands, reading, and Thai food.
My go-to outfit: ripped jeans, a black off-the-shoulder tee, and oversized hoop earrings.
I’m an Air Force wife, and I’ve been married to my husband for almost 15 years. Sometimes he flies a C-17 cargo plane; other times, he “flies a desk.” We have three kiddos (ages 9, 12, and 13) and two Germans Shepherds.
Places we’ve lived: Charleston AFB (South Carolina), Altus AFB (Oklahoma), Scott AFB (Illinois), Maxwell AFB (Alabama), Ramstein AB (Germany), Charleston AFB (again), and in Spring 2022, we’re headed back to Scott AFB.
Traveling is a significant source of inspiration for me. Places we’ve been over the past two years include Australia, France, Spain, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Italy, the Netherlands, and Kerry, Ireland.
I’m known for being easy to work with and always, always, always on time.
My favorite bible verse is Proverbs 16:24.
Kind words are like honey-sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
MISSION STATEMENT: Educate. Uplift. Inspire.
My mission as a lettering artist is to educate and inspire makers to get creative daily while embracing a spirit of community over competition.
I believe that growing your lettering skills is a life-long journey and that you’re only in competition with yourself. We’re here to have fun!
Forget perfection. Our mantra around here is “Practice Makes Progress.”
