Hello! I am so happy you ended up here. I'm Macey, the girl behind the pen & ink.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to get to know more about me and my business. Elegant design is my passion, and it is my great joy to share that passion with others. We currently run out of the Chicago area and are serving nationwide.

My artistic journey began in the fall of 2015. I was a freshman in college, and had two option for my final English project: I could write a paper or present a creative project to the class. This was a no brainer for me! I would have done anything to get out of writing a paper at that point... Ha! I quickly drove myself to the nearest craft store and purchased my first set of watercolor paints. Everything is history from there!

Since that day, my passion for this creative outlet has only grown. As I developed as an artist, I ran into the art form that would truly grab my heart - Calligraphy! When I picked up a pointed pen for the first time and glided across the paper, I knew that it was a perfect fit. 

As I have narrowed down my passion and the type of art I create, I've learned that stationery, branding, and wedding calligraphy are what make my heart flutter with joy! Elegant, intricate, and delicate paper goods are my loves. Handmade paper and soft paper edges are my happy place. I hope my commitment to do what I love translates into every scratch of my pen.

If you are someone who loves a soft & romantic aesthetic as much as I do, I would love to connect with you! I cannot wait to get to know you more.
