Featured Artist of the Month VII

February 8, 2017

Did you have struggles in pursuing the craft? If yes, could share it to us please.

Yes, of course, there will always be struggles. First, I never thought I would be good. Until now, I find imperfections with my works but that just makes me want to do it more. It makes me want to get even better. Second, there will always be competition. There were people who tried to sabotage me but I’ll never let them pull me down.

    Your friend Sab is so talented. Love her calligraphy. And love the inspiring words he shared. I always wish I will be that good at calligraphy and yet I do not do something to improve myself. I always do not find time to practice though I often tell myself I would. I should really push myself to make time for it. I also love her quotes. Truly inspiring.

    I heard about Sab via a friend. She’s really popular right now because of calligraphy. And she even holds calligraphy workshops according to the friend of mine. Is it true that she already quit her job to do it full time? I’m sure she’s inspiring a lot of people right now.

    I tried calligraphy once, but I never succeeded with this hobby haha! Sad to say, I discontinued practicing it. She’s very talented, makes me want to check and follow all her accounts.

    You always inspire me to get back to my old self to practice dancing with my pen and be creative. You’re friend is such an inspiration as well. The good thing is that the words that she wrote are powerful and encouraging words

    I love her calligraphy! She’s really good at it, it looks wonderful. Glad to see it here. And she’s only been doing this for 2 years? great! ‘Don’t rush’ is a good tip! I always tend to think I need to learn everything overnight haha.

    Calligraphy is something I would really love to learn this year. I am scouting for affordable workshops as most of them are a tad bit pricey for this mum’s taste {and wallet! :P} Meanwhile, I stalk so many talented calligraphers on IG for inspiration. Your friend Sab is really good, I love how she made her letters dance! ^_^

  • Reply Teresa February 11, 2017 at 8:38 PM

    I like those quotes on her IG. 🙂 Very inspiring quotes! I believe in them. I can relate to her. I also continue writing because I know that there are people who are inspired and helped by what I write.

    Wooowww she’s so damn good! <3 I've been a frustrated calligrapher ever since, but I do not have much time to practice. She's sooo inspiring, especially her perseverance. Thank you for sharing her story. Her works are beautiful! 😀 <3

    Wow Sabrina is really a talented artist, I love her calligraphy and watercolor work, it’s something that I can never stop admiring. As a designer, anything related to typography and arts will surely get my attention.

    am seriously fan-girling right about now! 🙂 i have a very deep respect for calligraphers as i am incapable of churning out anything pretty 🙂 apart from creativity, I can only imagine how much patience and discipline such craft entails.

    following Sab’s IG and checking out your Featured Artists series! 🙂

    I’m in love with the layout of your blog. Really liked this article, Sabrina sounds such a cool person! I love calligraphy (maybe because I would never be able to do it?). It’s so creative and it needs so much patience!
