I'm Lillian Liming, but my friends call me Lil. I'm a self-taught modern calligrapher based in New York's Lower Hudson Valley.

I picked up brush calligraphy four summers ago while living in Taiwan, with no art or design background. It began as a way to de-stress and learn something new, but it quickly became so much more. Brush calligraphy awakened a creativity in me that I didn't know I was capable of. 

My hope is to share this beautiful art form with anyone looking to discover their creative side, or simply those who might be looking for a new way to slow down and be present. By lettering words of affirmation and positive messages, calligraphy can be so much more than just a skill. Let’s explore this modern form of calligraphy together - join me for a local workshop, book a private lesson, or download my brush calligraphy worksheets to learn at home!

When not teaching or lettering, you can find me wandering new places with camera in hand, pastry-hunting, or enjoying a mug of matcha.

Come hang out with me on Instagram or at a workshop - I'd love to chat all things calligraphy with you!
