Hey ya'll! Thanks so much for stopping by. My name is Taylor and I'm the owner and creative director here at Taylor Jones Calligraphy. I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma with my amazing husband. He loves to play the drums and we both love to travel.
I think the questions I'm asked the most is how did I learn to do this and how did I get started. Well, let me start by saying I have always had a thing for pretty pens and paper. My love for hand lettering and calligraphy began in August of 2015. It all started when I followed a few Instagram accounts who were the bomb at calligraphy. I decided to give it a shot and it was pretty much a match made in heaven. I guess you could say I'm self taught! I wasn't aware of the worksheets or online classes so I practiced for months and months.
On a whim in early January, I started my Instagram (@tjcalligraphy) and Etsy shop (TJonesCalligraphy). I started everything as TB Calligraphy and then made the switch to TJ once I got married! I started my Instagram so I could have somewhere to share my work. I started my Etsy just wanting to see what would happen and where it would go. I didn't really set any expectations for the shop honestly. To answer the question on how I got started, honestly I just started. Don't let the fear of failing set you back! There will be set backs along the way but you will overcome those! It's not a walk in the park, but it's totally worth it.
