"Shannon and the work she does is AMAZING!
I contacted Shannon with a specific project in mind - a wall hanging of a poem for my wife. She was so helpful in talking me through all the various options and totally understanding of my limited budget. Shannon got the vision for my project immediately. In Shannon, I had a partner in executing my vision, not someone who would just thoughtlessly fulfill an order. She even caught a spelling error even though I thought I'd carefully triple-checked my language :).
Ultimately, the piece was PERFECT. My wife says that it's one of the best gifts she's ever received and we hang it proudly on our wall today. I can't recommend Shannon highly enough for her friendly and responsive communication, collaborative spirit (with her client always as the driver), attention to detail, and the extremely high quality of her products. She's the best!"

"Taking lessons with Shannon has been a great experience! I had never played guitar, and wanted to learn to accompany myself when I sing. Shannon is very patient, and her thorough teaching style makes remember chords much easier than I thought it would be!"

"Awesome introduction to calligraphy! The class was fun and stress free. Instruction was excellent. The materials are great and you take enough home to get started (with a list of what to get and where to get it). Highly recommend this class!"

"Shannon is a great teacher. She went step-by-step through the entire lower-case copperplate alphabet. She took time to check in with us after every two or three letters to make sure that we were good on the letters. There was plenty of hands on practice time as well personal demonstrations if needed. I look forward to taking Pointed Pen II with her soon."

"It was a pleasure working with Shannon on my Christmas projects this past year. Not only did she ask many questions to be sure that I got what I wanted, but she did such a beautiful job that the girls in my office loved the artwork. Thank you Shannon for working with me! I look forward to working with you in the future!! I will recommend you to anyone!!"

"I really enjoyed how Shannon taught this class. She went through the entire lowercase alphabet with us step by step which was very helpful. I enjoyed the whole class overall. The size was good, the location was nice too. I am looking forward to taking a more advanced class with Shannon in the future!"
Michele S., 2015:
"Shannon is an amazing guitar instructor. She's incredibly knowledgeable and presents material in logical components, and in a way that is understandable, even for a complete novice like myself.
Personal and encouraging, I highly recommend Shannon as a music instructor for both beginners and more advanced students alike. She thoroughly knows her stuff, and makes learning fun!"
Brandy S., 2018:
"Shannon breaks down the steps into bite-sized exercises and then helps you put it all together. You (obviously, after only a single class) don't leave a calligraphy master, but you do leave having accomplished quite a bit in class, and with enough skills and confidence to continue your practice. We were making words by the end of the class. Shannon walks around and give individualized attention to each student. Providing thoughtful and helpful insights. She makes it very easy to learn. Her handouts are great, she even includes a supplies list for continuing your practice."
Danielle N., 2018:
"This is such a fun class! Shannon is a great teacher. She is so patient, and she knows exactly how to explain things so you can understand and apply to your technique. With only 8 people in the class it allows for a lot of special attention from the teacher if need be. I already signed up for my next class with her!"
Antoinette W., 2018:
"I signed up for this course because like many of you, I got pinterest envy from all of these talented calligraphers! Additionally, it was a great value for the cost, 3 hours of instruction! We learned the whole lower case alphabet! I was extremely nervous for this class, but the small group size and the structure made me feel at ease! Shannon is so sweet, so positive and really talented! If it wasn't for her instruction I'm sure I would have done way worse. Every 20 minutes or so she goes around for one on one instruction which is very helpful. Be prepared to use your hand like you've never held it before, but I promise it will be soooo worth it!
