Julie Manwaring has long loved the whimsical, rhythmic beauty found in the repeating letterforms and flourishes of calligraphy. Her custom hand-lettering and illustration studio, Flourish & Whim, grew out of this love for letters and passion for art. Julie's styles are a unique blend of classic and modern - the perfectly imperfect ups and downs, swirls, and undulations create a graceful dance of words. Hailing from the Northeast, Julie currently lives in San Francisco with her family of three. When not in the studio, she can be found swinging at the playground with her son, strolling through the neighborhood fabric shop, or in the kitchen combining efforts with her husband on a new pizza recipe.

Laura Lavender has always been passionate about the fabulous world of the arts. She earned a BA in Fine Art and has had the privilege of studing calligraphy with many fine teachers. Her work has been commissioned by greeting card and book publishers, fashion designers, and musicians and has been featured in many magazines and blogs. Laura lives on Vancouver Island in Canada, where she paints, sews, gardens, dances and sings, and spends time with her family. To learn more about Laura, visit www.lauralavender.com.

Shauna Lynn Panczyszyn is a hand-lettering artist and illustrator located in Orlando, Florida. After graduating from the University of North Florida with a Bachelor of Arts, she interned at a local advertising agency, where her love of hand lettering and illustration was fostered and encouraged. Now a full-time freelance illustrator, Shauna has an unhealthy obsession with typography and is quick to point out awesome lettering and packaging examples to her friends and family, who thankfully put up with her quirkiness. She loves to create side projects based around lettering, such as her Three Word Stories project and positive quotes. Shauna works out of her home studio with her puppy, Teddy.
