Hola and welcome to Paperloveme Calligraphy!
Who is this for?
If you are looking for someone to help you with your calligraphy and watercolor needs, I am your gal. My friends can testify, when it comes to organizing parties, and labeling things with beautiful tags, and having a place card for everyone in the table, I am the queen bee. No, I am not planning on stealing Beyonce's crown, but I truly love working hard to create a beautiful ambiance with calligraphy and watercolor for people to enjoy. You will always see me in the hunt for pretty things thinking, oh wait "I can do this?!", looking everywhere for inspiration, day dreaming in my Pinterest boards, and commit to something that I am passionate about a 100%.
I created Paperloveme Calligraphy for people like me, who wants to use the art of calligraphy and watercolor to accent the essence of their events, who wants to learn the art, who is looking for DIY projects, and who appreciates these arts in all their shapes and forms.
My name is Giulissa Principe, creator of this beautiful place. I have always loved playing with paper and watercolors. I love letting my creativity flow in the form of lettering, calligraphy, watercolors and ink on paper. I have been making cards for friends and family for as long as I can remember. I stop playing with them a few years.
I decided to go to school for serious stuff like Political Science, but I ended up working for start-ups doing operations and supply chain for 12 years. About 4 years ago, I was feeling very stressed out about work, and I needed to distress somehow. So, I went back to my paper and colors.
How it all got started
Needless to say, calligraphy and watercolors have always been my greater companions and my source of calmness. Once I started practicing again, never stopped relaxing and loving my "alone" time with my dear tools. I have taken many classes ever since. I improved and developed new calligraphy styles and watercolor techniques.
In 2014, I decided to create a website and to give my "project" a name. I put my art and myself out there to see if people would like it. My friends and family were major supporters. In late 2015, I opened my Etsy shop and things started to slowly grow. In 2016, I was going bonkers with my full time job and my business (I still giggle when I say that). By end of 2016, I decided to quit my job. Paperloveme Calligraphy really took off and people really is happy when they get my work on their hands, I am hoping I can take Paperloveme Calligraphy to where I never imagined I could go. As of 2017, I am officially a business owner and doing what I love.
As an artist and calligrapher, I hope you enjoy my work and I hope it brings you as much happiness as it brings me to make it.
