Hand-lettering as a hobby, craft, and business

31 min / Published

Pam Stevenson, a native of Chile living in Massachusetts has a business using hand-lettering and modern calligraphy to create beautiful messages and pieces of art. She shares with us how she got started and how you can too.

Meet our Guest Pam:

Pam is a Chilean graphic designer married to an American Superman and she's the mom of three little ones. And they're currently living in Massachusetts where her husband teaches at Gordon College while she's at home, homeschooling the kids and she makes everything calligraphy related. And in her spare time, she is helping her husband with Proyecto Nehemías - I don't know if I said that right - The Nehemiah Project, which is a nonprofit, where he's making Christian literature available in Spanish.
