Molly Chidsey

I make hand-lettered art for word lovers and help you celebrate life’s magic with custom calligraphy, watercolor and ink. I am a modern calligrapher as well as an ink-and-watercolor illustrator. I offer custom art for my clients ranging from unique note cards to family trees to home portraits.

I have worked as a writer, editor, project manager, sustainability advocate and social equity organizer. After a career working for environmental and social change, I now channel these values into lettering and illustration projects for my clients. I weave all of these experiences and values into my work where we tell the truth, express our love, and celebrate life’s magical moments.

I live in Portland, Oregon with my partner of 22 years, Tony. When I’m not lettering and painting, you can find me in my ⅓ acre urban garden, hiking in Forest Park, riding my scooter, or playing board games with my family.
