Hello, I am Margaret, the girl behind SincerelyBo.
Many of you wondered what does “Bo” mean, it is my beautiful Chinese name given by my parents defines as precious. And the word “Sincerely” is often used in the sign-off section of a letter, hence the name Sincerely Bo.
My calligraphy journey began back at young age when I wrote and painted on a school door as an art project. Then I re-discovered my creativity when I made a snowman ornament for my son as a Christmas school gift. Then through some inspirations, I started to write on them as gifts, that’s how I picked up calligraphy. Since then I have taken calligraphy workshops to brush up on my calligraphy skills. I had the opportunity to take workshops with a few wonderful calligraphers in town in brush calligraphy. Recently I got my hands in Copperplate and I just can’t get my hands off.
In the past few years, I was able to put my interests in arts and crafts to good use by designing and applying my calligraphy design to teachers appreciation gifts, wedding favours and place cards for my clients. I also taught workshops on applying lettering on different surfaces such as wood, glass and acrylic. My interests and passion continues to grow as I helped my clients with wedding welcome signage, baby shower signage and even restaurant menu chalkboard.
I am so excited to share my passion with all of you!
