Allison has always been passionate about using her creative energy! She fondly remembers hand making greeting cards as a kid, and walking around the neighborhood selling them for holidays. A few years after graduating from business school, she decided to teach herself graphic design with the idea that she would love to work for herself. She quickly began designing event invitations for friends and family, and it wasn’t long before she added calligraphy to her repertoire. Since there weren’t any online or local classes yet, Allison took to the library for traditional calligraphy instruction books. After practicing the alphabet what felt like a million times, she had developed her own style. Allison Kathleen Calligraphy & Design officially opened its electronic doors in March of 2011, the day before Allison’s 25th Birthday! Now almost 7 years later, Allison still loves taking on a variety of creative projects!
Allison works from her home office in Plymouth, MA. Though no two days are ever the same, her favorite workday includes a sunshine filled office, tea, podcasts, and colorful creative fun! When she’s not working in her office, she’s most likely working outside in her gardens. She grows lots of flowers (including dahlias!) each year for her own arrangements around the house, and small events at the local Country Store. She is launching a collection of flower photography prints under her newest business venture, Lavender Ali.
