Desert Vista Grad Becoming Successful Calligraphy Artist
While the art of cursive handwriting may seem like a lost art form, for 2007 Desert Vista High School graduate Erica Tighe is using it to propel her career and business.
“A lot of people are feeling the loss of handwriting,” the 28 year old told the newspaper. “As we get more into keyboards and screens, we’re losing our handwriting ability. People are hiring me to teach cursive to their children. I think that is how my career has gotten so successful because a lot of people want hand-written invitations or things like that, and it’s hard finding someone who can do it.”
Tighe’s big break came when she was hired to make some invitations to an event that caught the eye of actresses Halle Berry and Courtney Cox, the article said.
