Hi, I'm Sen Mendiola!
As an artist: I am a calligrapher based in Manila, Philippines. My style is organic, simple, minimal and intentional, with an aesthetic of subtle elegance. Above all, I love scribing love notes and immortalizing vows thru pen and ink.
Calligraphy becomes my way of meditation. I love the patience and consistency it requires you to achieve acceptable letter forms. I love how intimate each stroke is to its writer - it requires focus, time and commitment. I found contentment and true joy every time I write words from a person's heart - like becoming an instrument in helping its voice heard.
I am still a work in progress and continuously learning. But I dare myself to begin, be intentional and dream big. So here I am, bravely carving a space at my own pace, hoping to make a connection and make your heart flutter one pen stroke at a time.
On a more personal note: I am a wife and a mom of one little ball of sunshine. Chocolates and iced coffee are my happy food! I am a member of IAMPETH (International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers, and Teachers of Handwriting) and I owe most of my penmanship study materials and inspiration here. I have graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from Polytechnic University of the Philippines and I walk in the corporate world as a full-time expert technical consultant at one of the largest Fintech company in the world. And oh, my real first name is - Jebsen (and for the nth time, yes, that name belongs to a woman).
