About Me

Angela McLeod Professional Calligrapher

Hello and thank you for visiting my website!

My name is Angela and I’ve been a professional calligrapher for 13 years.
After starting a family, I wanted to do something I enjoyed and only required my skills to get the job done. I found that in hand-lettered calligraphy.

Some of my favorite things.

My loving husband, two kids, and budgie parakeet Speckles. I enjoy running, reading, sci-fi movies, and dark chocolate. The materials I can’t live without are Moon Palace Sumi ink, watercolor, gouache, nibs, nice stationery and Rhodia graph pads. I work on an iMac. My favorite software is Adobe Illustrator¬†and Adobe Photoshop.

I studied under Michael Smith my mentor, Chief White House Calligrapher and Master Penmen Pat Blair, and Master Penmen Michael Sull. I have attended a variety of classes, workshops, and conferences. I am a member of the Washington Calligraphers Guild, the International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting (IAMPETH), and Write On Calligraphers.
