A bit more about Kaleb Norman James:
And find him on Insta here.
Kaleb can’t recall a single day he didn’t know he wanted to be an artist. It’s been in him since day one. When his friends had basketball practice, Kaleb was redesigning his room or getting lost in his sketchbook. While the designs have changed just a little bit, his dreams haven’t. Kaleb sees every event as an opportunity to take a blank canvas and create something that personifies his clients in a way that will leave them talking about it for years to come. His inspiration comes from his love of international travel, high-fashion and amazing food. Whether it’s an Italian seaside, killer pair of leather wingtips or the perfect caprese, it’s the quality of a life well lived that sets the stage for a remarkable event. Kaleb has come to discover that when you do what you love, work and play become one in the same.
A bit about Chantell Hoffman of Bespoke Strokes:
Find her on Insta here.
I first opened my studio while living in the gorgeous little British town of Henley-on-Thames (home of the Henley Royal Regatta). In England, I was inspired daily by the natural beauty that surrounded me as well as the everyday sightings of gorgeous calligraphy on antiquated stone buildings, pub walls, and in the royal mail. It is my hope that my calligraphic style reflects the timeless, classic nature of the beauty I was surrounded with there. I am now located in Seattle, WA – another area ripe with natural inspiration!
Bespoke is a term I’ve borrowed from my lovely British comrades which means “custom or tailor made.” As the studio’s name implies, I seek to create truly one of a kind pieces for my clients.
I have had a traditional dip pen in my hand since age 15 when I took my first calligraphy course. Out of my deep respect for calligraphy masters of ages past, I have been intentional to pursue a thorough calligraphic education. I have benefited from both formal education and personal study. Over the years I have taken courses from some of the most respected penmen and women of the day. Most recently, this includes Masters Penmen Michael Sull, Harvest Crittendon, and Jake Weidmann. I am also an active member of the International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting (IAMPETH).
And last of of course not least at all…. I am SOOOO thrilled to have booked Dairyland Farm in Snohomish to be the home of BLAZE for Feb 2017!!! This venue is STUNNING and will provide such an awesome backdrop for a day of deep learning and creativity! Can’t wait to see who will join us so go grab one of those last seats and prepare to ROCK YOUR BUSINESS!
