Melanie Payne - Letter and Turn


    About Melanie Payne
    I am a proud student of Carol DuBosch in Portland, Oregon.  My calligraphic journey started in elementary school when I was first introduced to italic during an enrichment class.  After graduating from Arizona State University with a degree in Communication, I briefly joined the Arizona Calligraphic Society in Phoenix and took a few weekend classes for fun. Wanting to stay inside, warm and dry, I returned to calligraphy again after we relocated to Portland.  I signed up for a class at Portland Community College with Carol DuBosch around 2013.  She has inspired me to get more involved with calligraphy and I haven’t looked back.  I am participating in Scribbled Lives for the first time this year. 

    During the day, I work as the Training Manager for the Bureau of Emergency Communications
    (Portland 9-1-1). I love to make letters.
