Don’t be folloed by my serious face, I can’t focus and not bite my tongue.

Hi friend! I am so glad you are here. Welcome to my calligraphy corner of the world. I'm Michelle, the calligrapher and designer behind Ma Belle Calligraphy.

A little about me - 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.

I love my family. Puppies. Coffee chats with friends. Snuggling in my bed (naps use to be my favorite but then, well, kids.) Pretty fonts (I know, who’s surprised), and game nights (yes, I’m a nerd at heart).

I value learning, self-care, and truly believe that we are so much stronger together than alone.

I didn’t always know I wanted to be a calligrapher, but life has a funny way of leading us to our callings.

What started as a means of personalizing our wedding has evolved into something even better than I could have ever imagined. Ma Belle Calligraphy was created in order to spread joy through lettering and connect people through their stories. A tribute to my father's love for the Beatles. And a little calligraphy corner of the world where lettering meets joy.

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.

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!
