Stuart-based artist Tatiana Lynette Hamel started doing calligraphy and designing stationery in 2017 after she became inspired by the fine art look while planning her wedding. “I discovered calligraphy and was so excited about how the lost art of intentional and beautiful writing was coming back,” she says. “That’s when I picked up my first pen and nib.”
Through her company, Lynette Rose Co., she provides brides-to-be the opportunity to enhance their own special day (and the days leading up to) through personalized items like custom invitation suites, menus, and programs. She also handles floral installations and works with local vendors to design reception tables, from tablecloths and napkins to place settings and more. “I love working with gorgeous seasonal blooms and paper mediums that are bespoke to each couple,” she says. “No two jobs are ever alike, and that’s what we strive for.” A common theme woven through her work is illustration, which Hamel says can include anything from venues and maps to details that speak to a couple’s wedding day design. While Lynette Rose Co. focuses mainly on weddings, Hamel’s calligraphy and stationery talents can also be applied to custom products on request, including Christmas cards and baby announcements.
