Hey there,

You’re a compassionate soul, a meaning-seeker, a dreamer of a better tomorrow. You care deeply about life, people, and the world.

You’re grateful your life is full, but if you’re honest, your heart is running on empty, taking care of everyone else and making a difference in the world.

You know that doing something relaxing and creative will recharge your heart, but it feels so hard to do on your own.

I’m Justine.

I empower everyday difference makers to influence the world from a full heart.

As a social impact calligrapher, community builder, and heart encourager, I create words and spaces that engage people in meaningful connections. This leads to “aha!” moments of personal growth, increased belonging, and inspired energy to make an impact with our lives.

I host calligraphy workshops in Vancouver, BC, (but will travel!) I teach lettering as a tool for creative self-care and social impact. It has the power to bring us into the present and share inspiration in a world full of distraction and disconnection.

The Word on the Street

Justine’s workshop sparked a dormant passion in me. There was this excitement in the group together as we were writing and sharing ideas, laughing, doing something fun for positive change.

Justine held a supportive, loving, and inspiring space where I overcame a huge block and fear around creativity, putting down my judgment and simply created. The laughter and fun of the day effortlessly led me over my own hurdles.

I was nervous but Justine really focuses on where you are, not on technical perfection. 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.

What’s a heart-centered calligaphy workshop?
