Mary Sherman

Hi, I’m Mary Sherman. I am the heart, soul and hands behind Joyful Writing Girl Calligraphy. For me, calligraphy is a passion, it fills my need for creative expression,
and I love sharing it with others whether it be on a beautifully addressed envelope or personalized gift.

I grew up in South Carolina, and I have spent many years living in NYC, a place near and dear to my heart. Currently, I reside in Charlotte, NC, my place of birth and home for 15 years. I have been happily married for 29 years, and am the proud mother of two wonderful boys, two cats, and one very active English Pointer. I love anything involving chocolate, reading, fall in NYC and enjoy tennis and walking. I also love to support local and small businesses.

I can write calligraphy on a variety of surfaces. Let us explore how we can incorporate calligraphy into your life whether for a special event or personalized gift.

Wedding Calligraphy

Set the tone of your special day weeks in advance with a beautifully hand-addressed envelope your guests will likely display alongside the invitation in anticipation.

Event Calligraphy

A hand-written menu, place card, table sign, or welcome sign will instantly take your event to the next level, leaving a memorable impression for your guests.

Seasonal Gifts

I offer a variety of personalized, hand-lettered, seasonal gifts. Hand-lettering can be used to personalize gift boxes, scented candles, perfume bottles, vodka, wine, champaign, whisky bottles or even Christmas ornaments and pumpkins in modern or traditional styles for your clientele.
