About Me


Hello and thanks for stopping by! My name is Usha and I’m the human being behind ‘Lettering by Usha’. I’m so glad that you decided to stop by and take a bit of your time to read about me and what this blog can do for you!

A little about me.

Most days you can find me…cuddling my baby boy, drinking a hot cup of coffee (Starbuck’s Pike Place is my all time favourite), documenting in my planner, lettering with my Tombow pens, watching great TV shows (My favourite shows are Jane The Virgin, Survivor and Game of Thrones), reading a good book, in deep conversation about life with my husband or trying out new recipes.

I am mostly known for…my love of a hot cup of coffee, buying pens (when I don’t need them), writing to do lists (with my pens), my love of colour and being positive and optimistic.

People often refer to me as…a mom, a creative person, a pen fanatic and a coffee snob.

I love serving the world by…sharing my passion of creativity whether that is through lettering or sharing a crafty tutorial.

The things I’m most passionate in life are…my son, my marriage, me, my creativity, family and taking vacations!

When I’m not busy being a mom you can catch me…lettering, being crafty, at the Starbucks drive thru, browsing around Michaels, watching Netflix or obsessing over lipstick colours.

As a lettering artist I’ve been honoured to… have completed two lettering classes by Amanda Arneill. The techniques taught can be seen throughout my work.

So, why read my blog and how will it help you?

As a hand lettering artist, I love everything about what I do and I love to inspire others to try hand lettering and bring out their creativity. You can expect to see me share tips and advice about hand lettering and supplies along the way. You will also see DIYs and crafting tutorials (Oh, and maybe comments about my obsession with coffee and the lipstick colour that I’m currently digging!).

If you’d like, grab your beverage of choice and read the first blog post here.

Who is this blog for?

If you love to craft and create, you are crazy about hand lettering, and love creative inspiration, then this blog is the right place for you! This is a blog for the creative community.

Does my blog have credibility?

Of course it does! When I started on this creative journey, I decided to invest in two hand lettering courses taught by Amanda Arneill. I took the beginner and intermediate hand lettering classes and haven’t looked back since. As a result of completing those two classes, I discovered my passion for hand lettering, art supplies and crafting and decided to open up my own Etsy shop. In my shop, you can find printable hand lettered quotes and gifts tags for all kinds of seasons and holidays (My favourite season is Fall and my favourite holiday is Christmas! – what’s yours?).

Okay, enough about me. I want to hear from you! Follow me on Instagram – that’s where you can follow my creative journey and see the occasional story about day to day life. You’ll also find me on Pinterest (pinning all of the food related posts! Did I mention that I’m obsessed with good food!?). And if you’re interested in a customized lettering piece, have a unique idea or would like to work with me, drop me a line! Finally, be sure to subscribe to the blog for regular updates!
