Hello! My name is Kimi Tang, and I'm the owner/calligrapher behind Kiminked. I'm originally from California, but after moving around to New Mexico and Washington for my husband's job, we finally settled down in Oregon with our two adorably sweet Calligraphy Assistant Dogs, Suki and Chloe. I love all things gray, white, pink, and gold, and anything that sparkles.
I started learning calligraphy because I was stressed out with work and wanted a hobby that would help me relax and de-stress at the end of the day. I looked on YouTube and found some pointed pen calligraphy videos that were so mesmerizing! It was love at first sight. After watching the videos, I bought my first calligraphy supplies, some books, and started learning calligraphy.
Since then, I've taken numerous calligraphy workshops (even one with a Master Penman!); am a member of the International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers, and Teachers of Handwriting (IAMPETH), as well as the Portland Society for Calligraphy; and am extremely privileged and honored to be mentored by one of the best Engrosser's Script Calligraphers living today (David Grimes of Masgrimes).
I'm a classically trained Calligrapher that specializes in Engrosser's Script Calligraphy, Flourished Copperplate, and a couple of versions of Modern Calligraphy and Broad Edge scripts. I have some examples of my traditional and modern work in my Portfolio.
I love what I do, but I love being able to make others happy through my calligraphy even more! If you'd like a custom quote for your project, have any questions, or just want to chat, feel free to contact me!
