Welcome to the launch of my all-new DeBord Studios blog! I am so glad you're here!
If you don't know me yet, my name is Shannon and I'm a left-handed, coffee addicted musician and calligrapher, living in Denver. Most days you can find me rockin’ some yoga pants in my studio, cup of strong coffee in hand, and listening to my George Winston Pandora station as I knock out the day’s to-do list (I live for lists! Seriously.). When I’m not working, you can find me outdoors and usually near/out on a lake somewhere because I L-O-V-E water! It's my version of Disney World (you know, "the happiest place on earth").
I love spreading joy through music and art, and I am passionate about sharing that joy with others who are interested in learning. I teach calligraphy workshops in my local community, and I absolutely love watching my students fall in love with their new hobby! I also co-direct a flute choir in Denver, and being able to create music together with flutists in the community is one of my favorite parts of the week.
I am passionate about telling my clients’ stories with ink and paper, and helping to make their vision a reality. Whether it's a personal gift for a friend, a new piece of home decor, a seating chart for a happy couple's special day, or an intimate letter to a loved one, I love seeing how written words can touch people's hearts.
So why a blog?, you might ask. Great question! Although I love my Insta-tribe and email Insiders, I wanted a place to be able to share my clients' beautiful stories, celebrate artistic passion, answer questions, and learn together in more detail. An Instagram post or email newsletter is no place for 500 words celebrating the story behind my latest commissioned project, or to fully discuss/answer a topic from a calligraphy student.
So welcome to the musings and ramblings that will be my blog! I don't guarantee a beautifully crafted piece of writing with each post, but I can promise a space where honesty, inspiration, and serving you, my readers, are my top priorities.
