Welcome! I'm Lisa, Greylily owner & calligrapher offering contemporary custom calligraphy





 ABOUT GREYLILY



I will never forget the day my mother gave me my first fountain pen as a 


ten-year old. It sparked an interest that stayed with me throughout my 


life. I’ve had a love for writing for as long as I can remember, and was 


always fascinated with how beautifully my grandmother wrote. As I got 


older, I realized the older generations had been taught penmanship- 


based on a form of calligraphy. 




My interest in writing never waned, nor my love of the arts. I took 


several art classes in high school and college, but went in the direction of 


science in college, & graduated with a Bachelor of Science in 


Criminology. After graduation and starting a family, my interest in 


calligraphy re-awakened. I began researching the foundations of writing 


itself, then the history of calligraphy (meaning “beautiful writing”), and 


that led me take courses in calligraphy. Several years later, I am still 


researching and learning and practicing this beautiful art form while 


raising my two beautiful children, Grey and Lily in our beautiful hills of 


east Tennessee. I want to instill in them what it is to pursue your dreams, 


to never forget the true love of what is in their hearts…
