Written by educator and lettering-artist Lauren Fitzmaurice (@renmadecalligraphy), this book offers plenty of tips and advice to show you not only how to improve your lettering but also how you can use lettering to find peace and calm.
Lauren Fitzmaurice is a left-handed calligrapher, lettering artist, and founder of Renmade Calligraphy. Through Renmade Calligraphy she teaches lettering workshops, works with awesome brands, and has gotten to know people in the calligraphy community from all over the world.
An art minor in college, Lauren had always been creative and artsy, but it wasn’t until January of 2015 that she first tried calligraphy. It had been an especially difficult year with her youngest son undergoing open heart surgery at 5 days old. Lauren was exhausted and burnt out and looking for something to focus on for herself. Lauren’s mom purchased an online calligraphy class for her and the rest is history. Learning this new skill not only helped Lauren focus on self-care and reflection, but it also has enhanced every area of her life and helped her get through other difficult challenges.
When she’s not lettering, Lauren is “Mrs. Fitz” to her elementary school students; Mom to sons, Mac and Miles; and wife to her husband, Michael. A lover of color, believer in glitter, and word nerd, Lauren loves to create beautiful letters and make a mess in her creative space with a brush pen in hand. She lives in Owensboro, Kentucky.
