Genevieve Ali

Calligrapher & Designer

I am a tea lover, book devourer, and sleep enthusiast. An artist from birth and a calligrapher from age eight (after my mother suggested I learn so that I could address my own wedding invitations — which I eventually did!), I believe in the power of words, the impact of the spiritual, elegance of simplicity, and the delicacy of beauty.

After teaching calligraphy classes in Los Angeles at the University of Southern California where I studied Creative Writing, I began calligraphing envelopes, cards, signs, and other paper goods for clients. In 2014 I moved to Maryland with my beardy husband, at which point I also began experimenting with watercolor painting and bookbinding. I fell in love with the fluidity and delicacy of watercolor and with the meditative precision of binding books by hand. Once I began merging my calligraphy and artistic design, there was no turning back. A paperie was born!

Think we’re a great fit?
