Ciarra is an artist, a calligrapher, a collector of beautiful things, and a really nice person. She works out of her studio, in the heart of downtown Petoskey, Michigan. Some of her favorite things are Chai Lattes, cozy slippers, and used book stores. Preferably all of these together. She is a talented illustrator, known for her Venue Illustrations and elegant lettering style. While she focuses on custom artwork and romantic stationery designs, she really loves people. Bringing joy to others truly lights her up. So she gives special attention to her custom wedding stationery clients by building relationships, and making them feel well cared for throughout the process.

She has a wonderful reputation in the wedding industry as a creator, collaborator and mentor.

I can't tell you how glad I am that you are reading this little note. I grew up believing that to make a living as an artist was an unachievable goal. So, to have built this business from nothing, being a self taught calligrapher and artist, and even to have this site for you to visit seems unreal still. I am incredibly grateful to all of the other calligraphers and amazing wedding creatives who have supported me and encouraged me along the way. I get to work with some of THE best couples, on beautiful weddings, and paint for a living. I get to play with wax seals, and curate the most beautiful papers. To say that this is my dream job is an understatement.
I love what I do, and I love the people I get to do it for. If you want to be one of these people, it would be my pleasure to hear from you. Fill out this inquiry form to start a conversation about your wedding stationery! Or check out my online shop to see the latest paper treasures!
