thank you for your curiosity about The Peculiar Ink. My name is Claire and I am the lady behind the letters.
How shall I begin? I’m Claire and I speak with a strong southern accent being from the Gulf Coast. I have an affinity for vintage culture. I'm almost always long winded and enjoy listening and telling stories.
I love to make people laugh, many times at my own expense. In terms of philosophy, I subscribe to a very simple theory: follow the golden rule.
The journey to blend my skills in calligraphy & hand lettering began in 2016 and with patience and persistence I have become dedicated to the lost art.
The thing I remember most often is that I am privileged to be able to live a free and authentic life.
Why ‘Peculiar’? Of all of the most interesting people I know, they represent the real authenticity that cannot be duplicated or manufactured. Peculiar is a term that has a stigma of “not fitting in" -- this is for those who have ever felt the same.
I enjoy creating a timeless and elegant aesthetic while at the same time maintaining a sense of surprise, keeping good vibes. Working with fun people who don't take life too seriously (but know the project must be done right) definitely helps.
I strongly believe in living and letting live. The old quote that '“a rising tide lifts all boats” speaks to me. These are some of the reasons I look forward to working with you on your next unique project and we will enjoy a collaborative approach to the process.
