“Maybelle is a woman of passion, grace, and talent, but aboveall, she wants everyone to have access to beautiful hand lettering. She believes that when pen is on paper, it’s a meditative gift andthe antidote to these modern times. No mark is ever seen as ‘imperfect’, no stroke is ever overly corrected; it’s all about the flow and letting go.”
