Hello! I’m Vivian, the human behind Purple Martin Lettering & Graphics. I am a hand-lettering and calligraphy artist based in New York. I am so happy that you are here!

Since my teenage years, I have been traveling and residing in different parts of the world- Taiwan, China, Sweden, and the US. For the past six years, I’ve been calling Astoria, New York, my home. I love all things beautiful, creative, and authentic. I strive to be adventurous and am always willing to try something new- be it drawing, traveling, or cooking.

Purple Martin Lettering & Graphics was born out of the desire to honor God. I believe that every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows (James 1:17).

I am convinced that the word of God is just and is the lamp on our feet. When we sincerely seek and follow Jesus, He will never forsake us. If we live our lives for Jesus and the benefit of others, we will fulfill the purpose of our lives. We are all called to create because we are made in the image of the Great Creator. I can do what I do because of my loving family and friends; they are my greatest inspiration and encouragers.

I take great joy in working with my hands, living a simple life, and encouraging others with what I made. Thank you so much for stopping by, and feel free to contact me with any questions and inquiries at vivian@purplemartinlettering.com.
