Guest:

Artist and calligrapher Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls finds beauty in imperfection, a widely acclaimed and distinctly modern approach to calligraphy. With over 10 years of experience, Maybelle has been commissioned for bespoke wedding invitations, letterpress stationery, and editorial features, exhibiting her elegant and playful signature style for a range of clients. Her work has appeared in Martha Stewart Weddings, Sunset Magazine, Victoria, Better Homes and Gardens, and Brides, and has been featured on Design*Sponge, Besotted, Brooklyn Bride, Oh Happy Day, Snippet & Ink, Sunday Suppers, and Style Me Pretty.

Drawing inspiration from botanical engravings, vintage alphabet specimens, and her numerous travels abroad, Maybelle has been known to journey to Paris for just the right calligraphy nib. Her love of ephemera and faraway places inspired a collaboration with Chronicle Books: Belle Calligraphy Kit, Materials and Inspiration for Modern Script.

She developed Calligraphy in the 21st Century, a popular San Francisco workshop booked months in advance, as a way to share her passion with the creative community. This year, Maybelle offers the course in some of her favorite cities: New York City, Los Angeles, Portland, Santa Barbara, and Sydney, Australia.

Raised in Hawaii, Maybelle lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and twins.
