Hi friend! Welcome to my calligraphy corner of the world. I'm Michelle, the calligrapher and designer behind Ma Belle Calligraphy. I was born in Puerto Rico, grew up in Florida and currently live in Charlottesville, Virginia with my husband, our IVF miracle, and our two fur pups.

What do I love? My fam. Coffee chats with friends. Pretty fonts (I know, who’s surprised), game nights (yes, I’m a nerd at heart), and a little bit of yoga.

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 a pretty piece of art can memorialize a moment for years to come.

I love working on projects with a story behind them - projects that have meaning and bring people joy. I've been so moved by the sweet clients I've had the opportunity to work with thus far and can't wait to meet you and learn more about your story!
