Hey Babe, I’m Mabz

[Mah-bz] not [May-bz]

Ok, so technically my name is Marie-Andrée Brisson, but that's a mouthful.

Mabz is an acronym of my initials + an added zed for flair...not that I needed any. (So yes, you CAN actually call me Mabz. In fact, I prefer it.)

I am a self-taught modern left-handed lettering artist and calligrapher based in the Ottawa area. I'm originally a small town gal from northern Ontario, but fell in love with our capital city while studying fine arts at the University of Ottawa and never looked back.

Along with lettering and calligraphy, I love a generous slice of cheesecake, Leonardo DiCaprio (*swoon*), when a sticker comes off in one clean swoop (*double swoon*), and the 3 of hearts.

Thanks for poppin' by my wee chunk of the web and don't be shy to say hello/inquire about my services/invite me over for wine and cheesecake/introduce me to your cousin Leo.
