Give me a piece of chalk and I am in my element.
My first recollection of a chalkboard was my school years – it seemed that I spent hours and hours in front of a huge chalkboard at school (for those of you that grew up in the 90’s, you know the one’s– chalkboards that are so big that they span the entire width of a classroom and are filled with a multitude of lessons and information including the dreaded detention list and homework!)
In hindsight, my teacher putting chalk to chalkboard in his/her perfect writing served it’s true purpose – the purpose to teach me things – to shape who I am today. Still to this day have never forgotten the smell of chalk, the privilege to be chosen to clean the board at the end of day and the time my teacher accidentally rubbed me off the detention list!!!!!!
Growing up, I had a yearn to do all things creative – I remember practising with my first lettering and calligraphy book. I did not however find a dedication for writing on chalkboards until many years later in around 2014 when I was asked one day to write something on a chalkboard (The Horror! It had the resemblance of my 10 year old former self solving an equation on my school chalkboard!) This event brought back memories of my school days, and how my teachers would write on that big old chalkboard in perfect, legible lettering is what lead me to delve into the world of Hand Lettering and Chalk Art.
