MY STORY

Hi there! I'm Paige, the artist behind The Blank Paige. My passion for art began at a young age and led me to pursuing a career as an art teacher. I received my BS in Painting and Art Education from Illinois State University and taught visual art for 10 years. While I loved teaching and encouraging my students to create, I found myself uninspired to create any art for myself.

 

In search for a new creative outlet, I immediately thought of my Grandmother. She was a woman of many hobbies. A true testament to the phrase "lifelong learner" she started taking painting lessons in her 80s and found a new passion in watercolor. As a small child, I remember her teaching me calligraphy and decided to explore it again! 

 

Suddenly, blank pages were filled with drills, and letters, and phrases. After spending my nights and summers learning this beautiful art form, I decided I wanted to share my passion with others and The Blank Paige was created! My favorite part about calligraphy and lettering is how it can be incorporated into so many of my other artistic passions such as painting and design. Blank pages have evolved into custom signs, murals and wedding invitations. Henri Matisse once said "Create the things you wish existed." My goal with The Blank Paige is to do just that! I cannot wait to share my love of art, design and calligraphy with you and create something truly extraordinary together!
