Originally from a small beach town in South Jersey, Danielle Williams has always had a passion for design and fine stationery. From a young age she appreciated the romance of sending handwritten letters; spending hours rewriting them word by word until they were flawless. Danielle considered no detail too small— hand selecting the finest papers, perfect ink colors, and ornate vintage stamps to compliment her creations. To this day it is these small touches that define her style.
Art and design have always been part of Danielle's life. She constantly finds ways to make the most ordinary things unique; a trait that was exemplified when it came to planning her 2014 Hamptons wedding— the same event that lead her to fall in love with not only calligraphy, but the wedding industry itself.
Danielle graduated with a degree in psychology from Syracuse University in 2011 and spent the first part of her career in visual merchandising, but in her heart she knew that she wanted to follow a more creative path. It was a relocation from New York to Texas that gave her the opportunity to make that dream a reality.
Enchanted with the art of calligraphy, Danielle began self-educating herself on the practice by taking every moment that she could to explore the various methods. This fascination then expanded into attending Modern Calligraphy Summits and taking courses on Skillshare as she set out to perfect the skill. As custom orders began to come in it was becoming clear that calligraphy was evolving into more than just a hobby for Danielle, and in 2016 Danielle Williams Calligraphy was born.
Danielle lives in Houston, TX with her two favorite gentlemen, her husband Travis and her yorkie-poo, Hudson (there is no need to mention who her favorite is). When she's not at her desk you can find her exploring new restaurants, experimenting with new recipes, reading home decor blogs, and binge watching way too much Netflix. A few of her favorite things include: drinking iced coffee no matter the temperature, enjoying a crisp glass of rosé or a gin and tonic on a sunny day, and day dreaming about being at the beach.
