I'm Karisa - the person behind Karisa Ellen Creative. Nice to meet you.

When I was young my grandmother, Nana, and I spent our time together "being crafty". She taught me how to cross stitch and paint, but I struggled when she tried to teach me calligraphy. After a few attempts, I gave up on calligraphy and went on to teach myself other creative outlets, like embroidery and watercolor painting. As I grew older, I recognized how beautiful and elegant traditional and modern calligraphy are, and this pushed me to re-learn the art. Now I'm obsessed with using calligraphy to add a personal touch to everything I can get my hands on - even the drink napkin at a restaurant!

I love working with individuals to make their vision a reality. I believe that everyone deserves to have beauty in their life and am confident that I can add a special touch to any project that you have.

I live in Alexandria, Virginia with my boyfriend, Ari, and our two fur babies, Eva Mae and Chloe. When I'm not "crafting", I enjoy spending my time running, drinking Diet Coke, watching Netflix marathons, and spending time with friends and family.
