I'm Abby Farson Pratt, and I am a Charlottesville, Virginia–based lettering artist.
I love working with local artists and clients, but I've also enjoyed creating projects for people around the world.
I have been practicing calligraphy since I was young. My mother started me on the Italic Handwriting Series when I was in elementary school, and I have been studying the art of beautiful handwriting ever since.
I live in Charlottesville with my husband, musician Guion Pratt, and our two German shepherds, Pyrrha and Eden. When I'm not in the calligraphy studio, I work as a copy editor.
Let me know how I can help meet your fine lettering needs!
