Minnie Do - Calligrapher/ Engraver
Hi, I am Minnie and I am the artist behind A Grateful Note. In 2015; after finishing college and working as a full-time freelance graphic designers; I occasionally took on wedding calligraphy projects and found much interest in hand-lettering and modern calligraphy. I quickly realized that I have the necessary skills for this form of art and this would be the reason why I create.
In 2017, I reconnected with my father after 14 years; who told me my grandfather was once a very well-known traditional Chinese-Vietnamese calligrapher in the 50s-60s. He supported his family of wife and 15 children through the Vietnam War by offering calligraphy for weddings and Vietnamese New Year. That sparked my desire to continue practicing and educating calligraphy to my clients and students as a family legacy.
Be authentic, not unique
I created A Grateful Note in 2018, focusing on high-end visual solution for weddings and events, transferring messages into beautiful artworks. In 2020, due to the global pandemic, I shifted A Grateful Note's mission to preserving the practice of hand-lettering and modern calligraphy. Check out our list of services here.
