Jecelyn Chong is a professional calligrapher and brush letterer. She started picking up the skills towards the end of the year 2015. Throughout her career, she has helped write wedding place cards, cards for birthdays and bridal showers plus so much more. So where did she draw inspiration from? Well, the simple answer would be the beauty of the art itself. When scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest, she mentioned that the numerous artwork she came across was the catalyst to what really sparked the desire for her to get up and learn these skills.
It’s also no surprise that she believes more people should take up the art of calligraphy and brush lettering because it not only trains your patience, but it also makes up to be a thoughtful gift for friends and family as everything is hand-written.
Jecelyn’s biggest achievement as of now would definitely be being able to carry out her own independent workshops. She mentioned that she would have never dreamed of having the opportunity to conduct workshops and teach others about something she is so greatly passionate about. As for the future of calligraphy and brush lettering, she hopes more people would appreciate the time and effort it takes to do this; and to let them know that it’s not just something pointless to do.
