Mandy was born in Hong Kong and raised in Canada. Despite of Chinese culture’s focus in math and medicine, Mandy’s passion was in arts and culture. Her mother supported her pursuit by having Mandy trained with the best art teachers in Toronto. Mandy achieved her Bachelors in Interior Design at Ryerson University where she became Lead Designer and Project Manager for custom home companies.
Though Mandy did not continue in interior design, her years of experience in the design and project management industry has led her to build a creative business for herself.
Since founding Mandy Calligraphy & Design in 2016, Mandy’s work has been featured in WedLuxe Magazine, interviewed by Manuscript Pen Company UK, and commissioned to work for prestigious brands such as MaxMara.
After two short years of building her business, Mandy gave back to her community by being involved with The Olive Branch of Hope where she designed inspirational cards for women battling cancer / cancer survivors. Through her time with the community, Mandy realized that calligraphy and writing is a powerful thing. In that same summer, Mandy launched her first calligraphy workshop to share the beautiful and therapeutic art of calligraphy with others. On her fifth workshop, Mandy donated the proceeds to Partners International Canada where they buy sewing machines for women entrepreneurs in India and Napel to help them build profitable tailoring businesses.
In the years to come, Mandy will continue to empower and teach women creative skills, both locally and around the world.
