thank you for your curiosity about The Peculiar Ink.  My name is Claire and I am the lady behind the letters. 

If you haven't met me in person yet, you won't know that I speak with a strong southern accent.  I have an affinity for vintage culture.  I'm almost always long winded.  


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 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 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.

In that I enjoy creating a timeless and elegant aesthetic  while at the same time maintaining a sense of surprise, keeping good vibes and working with fun people who don't take life too seriously definitely helps. 

I strongly believe in living and letting live.  I look forward to working with you on your unique project and enjoy a collaborative approach to the process.

Well, if you want to sing out, sing out
And if you want to be free, be free
’Cause there’s a million things to be
You know that there are

And if you want to live high, live high
And if you want to live low, live low
’Cause there’s a million ways to go
You know that there are
