Meet the Maker
Ever since elementary school, I’ve always doodled. The margins of my ruled notebooks were adorned with spirals, bubble letters & whimsical creations from my childhood imagination. Growing up outside of Charleston, SC, I was introduced to a variety of arts, music & handmade crafts, but I never planned to be an artist.
During high school, I became a designer on my school paper & I loved the opportunity to create layouts that made our writers’ work stand out. Being part of the newspaper staff led me to pursue a degree in graphic design at Marymount University in northern Virginia where I fell in love with creating beautiful printing projects.
After graduating, I continued learning & gaining print experience as a project manager at a DC-based content marketing firm, overseeing the design & production of several association publications.
As our firm underwent some big changes, my job became a loadstone & it started draining me mentally, emotionally & spiritually. I needed an outlet. In 2014, I returned to my sketchbook & started lettering & doodling again. I cannot tell you the joy it brought me to be creative again. In January 2015, I opened Meekly Yours to share that joy with others.
Our world is in desperate need of joy to get through the day, week, month, or even year. If I can brighten one person’s day, I consider my work a success.
