About mandy

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.

TESTIMONIALS

 
I first contacted Mandy as I decided to get the mirror as seating chart for my wedding. She was easy to communicate with through email and she did an amazing job with the mirror. All my guests loved it!
Then I decided to join her calligraphy workshop this past weekend and it was really fun! She’s very approachable, friendly, and knowledgeable! She’s a really great teacher! The workshop was fun and easygoing! So excited to practice more on my calligraphy and planning to join another workshop!

Its wonderful of Mandy to share in her love of modern calligraphy through her workshops. She’s so passionate about her work and very encouraging with her students. Small, and intimate group so Mandy is able to give you lots of assistance. The studio is warm, inviting and in a great location! Looking forward to many more workshops with Mandy!
