About Lillian Liming
Lillian, of Lillian Liming Design Co. is a self-taught modern calligrapher who found respite in hand-lettering. She picked up brush calligraphy four summers ago while living abroad. It began as a way to de-stress and learn something new, but it quickly became so much more. It awakened a creativity in her that she didn't know she was capable of.
Lillian’s hope is to share this beautiful art form with anyone looking to tap into their creative side, or simply those who might be looking for a different way to slow down and be present. By lettering words of affirmation and positive messages, calligraphy can be so much more than just a skill. Let’s explore this modern form of calligraphy together - nice handwriting, not required!
When not teaching or lettering, you can find Lillian wandering new places with camera in hand, pastry-hunting, or enjoying a mug of matcha.
