Inspiring Calligraphers: Anna Lora Whitley of Silt and Pine Calligraphy

Hey everyone! We’re into the summer swing of things… which means summer soirées and summer weddings! We’re celebrating these long summer days with some gorgeous calligraphy and hand lettering work from Anna Lora Whitley. Her calligraphy work as Silt and Pine is a sweet find (much like stumbling on a good lemonade in the summer). Jen

On her calligraphy style, Anna Lora says: My lettering style is honestly a version of my own handwriting. When I first started calligraphy, I kept getting so frustrated trying to do the traditional calligraphy styles. I quickly realized that it was much more important to me to create my own style.

On a favorite project she’s worked on: I got to work on was a New Orleans + Indian fusion wedding. I am partial to New Orleans because my husband and I got married there, but I was so excited to work on this particular wedding because of the blending of cultures, beautiful color palette that the wedding planners, The Nouveau Romantics, created for the wedding and the absolutely stunning venue. It is hands down the most inspiring project I have worked on so far!

On non-traditional surfaces, she shares: My favorite non-paper surface that I have worked on would be mirrors, but I have a feeling I’m about to have a new favorite. I have a fun wedding coming up where I get to write on acrylic and agate slices. The seating chart will be an 8-foot tall piece of acrylic. It is going to be such a fun project to work on.

A big thanks to Anna of Silt and Pine for sharing a peek at her work!
