I’m Amanda!

I’m a busy mom, wife, and entrepreneur. I’m self-taught in the art of modern calligraphy as well as the world of Procreate and iPad lettering. Now I’m on a mission to teach you too! If I’m not spending my free time doodling, crafting, or painting, I love to go camping and travel with my family, and create new recipes in the kitchen.

When I was a kid, I loved to doodle, color and paint. I would spend my free time deep in a coloring book, painting at the kitchen table, or at my desk drawing and doodling. In college, I took several art classes to help fulfill my Interior Design degree and discovered an underlying passion and appreciation for art.

In 2016 I started to teach myself brush lettering as a creative outlet. It quickly turned into a passion and obsession. Learning everything I could about calligraphy, brush lettering, typography, and iPad lettering has evolved into this blog and business, where I share what I’ve learned.

Here at Designs by Amanda Kay, you’ll find helpful tutorials for hand letteringpractice sheets, and videos for creating your own lettering art. I also share tons of freebies for you to enjoy including printables, craft files, and more!
