Meet our Script Squad!

We are fortunate to work with some very talented calligraphers. In July of 2017, Meg and Julie expanded the team and welcomed the talented Jess Glazier as the first member of our “Script Squad”. Since then our team has grown to three amazing and passionate calligraphers!

Sip & Script® offers Squad members an outlet to teach what they’re most passionate about and earn money while doing it!

Jess

Jess has owned and operated Canvas & Kale since December of 2014, serving clients with hand calligraphy and lettering work for weddings, showers, events & more. Jess’ love for lettering was apparent early on. She would sneak into her mom’s home office and use an original feathered calligraphy pen that was used for her parent’s wedding. She has always had a love for art, and a love for creating pretty things.

Jess grew up in a small, quintessential New England town in Connecticut, with her parents and sister, and has always been considered the “artsy one” in the family. She studied Elementary Education, at Southern Connecticut State University, and after graduating, she moved to Boston, MA to pursue her Masters in Education at Boston University. Although teaching was what Jess always pictured her “grown up” job to be, she took a leap of faith on her true passion, calligraphy, and opened Canvas & Kale.

Most days, you’ll find Jess in her home studio, drinking kombucha, and watching reruns of One Tree Hill as she completes orders. She loves yoga, coffee shops and exploring with her Fiancé and fur-baby, Berkeley Kale. Catch up with her on Instagram @canvasandkale, her Etsy shop, or through her website www.canvasandkale.com.

Molly

Farm-raised creative, routine organizer, amateur decorator, Harry Potter fan, dog mom, rock climber & travel enthusiast.

Molly grew up with a pen in her hand, dirt on her feet, and a passion for creativity. Her mother introduced her to the art of calligraphy at a young age, a hobby she had dabbled in years before. Molly remembers practicing relentlessly at their drafting table eagerly trying to perfect every letterform. Little did she know that would mark the very beginning of her creative career.

Since graduating with a BFA in graphic design in 2013, Molly’s agency and wedding industry experience has equipped her with the knowledge and expertise to provide uniquely tailored work to her clients. Molly Grace Makes was founded in 2017 on the idea that creativity and design is not a linear path. Molly explores her passion for making and bringing her clients’ stories to life using calligraphy as the foundation.

When Molly’s hand aren’t covered in ink, they’re covered in chalk at the climbing gym or dirt in the garden. Follow Molly’s creative journey on Instagram @mollygracemakes, or learn from her at one of our upcoming Sip & Script® events!

Alyssa

Alyssa’s love of art and creativity stems from her late uncle, who was a pointillist painter. He gave her her first art set at age five, and instead of creating beautiful landscapes and portraits like her uncle, she found herself writing the names of family and friends in various fonts and styles. Throughout her school years, she was always touted as “the lefty with the neat handwriting.”

Calligraphy did not become a part of Alyssa’s life until 2016, when she received her first hand-calligraphed wedding invitation. She immediately connected with the artist to learn how to get started with calligraphy herself. Alyssa taught herself basic calligraphy through Instagram videos and tutorials, and even took a Sip & Script class early on! Alyssa now serves clients with calligraphy and lettering work through Alyssa Drury Calligraphy for various events and special occasions.

Since graduating from Northeastern University in 2014, Alyssa has worked full-time as a Marketing Manager for Seismic. When she’s not at her day job, you can find her working on calligraphy projects in Boston’s North End while watching the Bruins or Patriots (or anything on The Food Network if her teams aren’t playing). She loves the beach, and her favorite place to do anything calligraphy-related is on her parents’ roof deck overlooking the water in Rhode Island.
