Meet the lady behind the lettering

call me Courtney, Courts, Courtney Ann

As someone whose everyday handwriting has been described as “hieroglyphic - like”, you might not expect me to be the person taking your words and turning them into art. It’s me, though! Many things led me here, but creating signage for my best friend’s wedding in 2019 is how this all really started. (Shelbs and Al, can we redo those signs?) My lettering has come a long way, but not without the love and support of those around me. You can now find me sitting in Kendra Scott hand-lettering bags, on the pages of Saint Louis Bride and featured on Green Wedding Shoes when you’re scrolling Instagram.
