Welcome to Kallialitheia

“Kalli” (ka-lee) and “alitheia” (a-li-thee-ah) are Greek words meaning “beautiful” and “truth”. 

Put together, these words describe the purpose of my website and Instagram–to offer you words that are as true and meaningful as they are beautiful.

On the blog I will be sharing with you tutorials covering every aspect of calligraphy, information about calligraphy supplies, and free and premium calligraphy worksheets.
