Hey, y’all! Charlene here!

Thank you for visiting Charligraphy! When creating custom work for life’s special moment or for your home, I feel that the only way to do right by your vision is to get to know you and you get to know me!

My name is Charlene Delos Santos. I’m from the part of California where we say “hella” and am currently living life in Portland, Oregon. I made the move to Oregon in 2015 - on a quarter-life-crisis, in search of something new and exciting. That’s exactly what I’ve been finding here.

I spent many nights in my living room with my roommate talking about what we wanted to be when we grow up while sketching, creating, and practicing different art mediums. That’s where I found my love for hand lettering and calligraphy. I started designing signs for close family and friends - loved every bit of it.

My cousin hired me to create signage and paper goods for her wedding and wow, was that a life changing moment for me. I found such a love for creating signage for such a special life event. Seeing how happy she was with my designs, made me happy. That’s how “Charligraphy” launched!
