If you’re looking for a genuine, personalized touch to bring meaning to your wedding day, help you turn a favorite quote into a beautiful keepsake, or guide you through learning the art of calligraphy, you’ve come to the right place.

I'm Michelle, the calligrapher and designer behind Ma Belle Calligraphy. I didn’t always know I wanted to be a calligrapher, but life has a funny way of leading us to our callings.

If you’re here, I hope it’s because you know that a handwritten note can make someone feel special. That a few words can tell a story. And that capturing those words on paper can memorialize a moment for years to come.


Each piece I letter is so much more than words on a page. It is a part of your story.

Whether you’re looking to feel inspired or to get started on your own calligraphy journey. If you have a love for pretty lettering and meaningful stories, there’s something here for you.

And while I might be based out of Charlottesville, Virginia, I’ve served clients all across the country. A little distance never scared me. So whether you’re right here locally or on the opposite coast, if any of this resonated with you — go ahead and tell me a little bit more about you. Where does your calligraphy story begin?

And of course, if you love a good caption and the community that social media provides as much as I do, don’t miss all the lettering goodness over on Instagram. It’s my favorite place to connect with you and the perfect place for you to meet other members of this amazing calligrafam.
