I'm Lillian Liming, but my friends call me Lil. I'm a self-taught modern brush calligrapher based in the Lower Hudson Valley of New York.
I picked up brush calligraphy three summers ago while living in Taiwan, with no art or design background. It started off as a creative and therapeutic outlet for me; tracking my progress via Instagram and connecting with budding calligraphers online. In the last year, however, I felt called to create an off-line community so I began sharing my love for lettering in the form of workshops.
My hope is to share this art form with those like me, someone who thought art was intimidating and out of reach. I'm here to tell you that it's not. If I can learn calligraphy, then so can you. I'd love to help you learn - join me for a local workshop, book a private lesson, or order a brush calligraphy starter kit to learn from home!
When not teaching or lettering, you can find me wandering new places with camera in hand, pastry-hunting, or seeking out all things matcha.
