About Me

My name is Nicole and I am the calligrapher and owner of Paper Moon Calligraphy.  I started the art of calligraphy as a hobby about 3 years ago and then in 2017 decided to make a business out of it.   


The name Paper Moon came from the name of a restaurant that my husband took me out to on our first date. He actually surprised me with the date. He got some fellow friends of mine involved with the ruse by staging a shopping trip to the city. We weren’t living in the same states at that time, so he traveled to where I was to surprise me and ask me out.  Romantic right?! Unfortunately, the restaurant is not around anymore, but the name always had a special place in my heart.  


I am married to this wonderful jack-of-all trades man, and have a beautiful son.  I grew up in NYC and moved down to North Carolina after I graduated college with a degree in Psychology, where I met my darling husband to be.    I am an INFJ (Myers briggs personality) and of the house of Gryffindor ( for Harry Potter fans out there).  My favorite things to do are journal , read fantasy novels, sing, dance, listen to kpop music, and when I can afford to, travel.  


Paper Moon Calligraphy is a business birthed from my desire to be the me I hope to be and from the love to make things beautiful.  Please contact me with whatever you wedding or event designs you are interested in and I would love to work with you to help make it come to life.
