Heirloom Artists - Calligraphy, Design and Illumination
From the drawing boards of
Holly Monroe and Clifford Mansley, Sr.
Way back in the day, my folks, Cliff (calligrapher) and Jean (fine artist)
met in Philadelphia and established our family business, Heirloom Artists.
I, Holly, grew up with drawing lessons from Mom and calligraphy lessons from Dad.
Early on, I never thought that I would design & letter as a full time business,
but here I am, professional calligrapher. In 2015, I moved from my beloved Cincinnati,
Ohio clients and friends to Lake Oswego, Oregon, where I have established my current studio.
Here, I have been taking on commissions and overseeing web orders.
Cliff, after turning 90 is no longer taking on commissions, but we
do have his reproductions for sale.
