ABOUT Lillian Liming (in her own words!)
I'm Lillian, but my friends call me Lil. I'm a self-taught modern calligrapher based in New York.
My creative journey began four summers ago while living in Taiwan - I decided to learn brush calligraphy as a challenge to learn a new skill. With no art background, I armed myself with a handful of brush pens and 15-second Instagram videos, practicing just 15-30 minutes every day.
Soon, this little self-challenge became so much more. The rhythmic and repetitive movements of the pen on paper soothed the soul. Calligraphy awakened a creativity in me that I didn't know I was capable of.
By lettering words of affirmation and positive messages, calligraphy can be so much more than just a skill or a pretty piece of art. My hope is to share the beautiful art form of modern calligraphy with those looking to discover their own creativity or simply those looking for a new way to slow down and decompress from the day.
When not teaching or lettering, you can find me wandering new places with camera in hand, pastry-hunting, or enjoying a mug of matcha.
Come hang out with me on Instagram -- I'd love to chat all things calligraphy with you!
