Hello! I'm Justine. I'm a social impact calligrapher.
I'm a dot connector, heart encourager, community builder, and compassion catalyst. I create words and spaces to engage compassionate souls like you in meaningful connections so you can impact your world from a full heart.
My jam is hosting heart-centered workshops that refresh you, increase belonging, and give back to the community. I'm forever a night owl, a nap enthusiast, and a dreamer. Shall we dream of the kind of world can we create together?
Justine’s workshops connected me to my younger self. Connecting in conversation and community with others also brought out a whole new side of me. I used to have huge expectations of art, but now I nurture it slowly and regularly. I love how it feeds me and in turn feeds others when I share my creations as gifts. I enjoy when people come together for a greater purpose, using words as a powerful way to impact others for good.
Justine’s workshop sparked a passion that was dormant for 30 years. She is much more than explaining how to form letters. She's passionate about the messages and words and delivering them in a beautiful way. There was this excitement in the group, it was fun and enjoyable. I was moved by the connection to social justice, having a cause, being in community, writing and sharing ideas, laughing, doing something fun for positive change.
I feel more confident and alive when I connect with other people in the community. Justine’s workshops are a fun way to connect, to develop a new skill, and to do something tactile. Writing encouraging notes to women in recovery makes you realize how much you need that encouragement. I felt sort of connected to the needs of people I didn’t even know. Just writing those words of positivity, you’re feeding those truths into yourself.
I was nervous but Justine really focuses on where you are, not getting constrained in technical perfection, yet giving you enough technical knowledge necessary to expand. Getting into the flow and space of slowness, helped me identify it’s something I really need. The heart workshops connected me to the value of building connections and community. That’s what keeps me exploring where this can have impact on the community and connecting with more people.
I’ve been scared to do calligraphy because I can be such a perfectionist. Justine holds a supportive, loving, and inspiring space where I overcame a huge block around creativity. I felt safe to explore my feelings, put down my judgment and simply create. I articulated a piece of gratitude that feels like a celebration to me. It was the laughter and fun of the day that effortlessly led me over my own hurdles.
