My name is Kyle and I am behind the handcrafted art + modern calligraphy brand, Olde York Station. I am a self-taught artist, dedicated to producing artful, distinctive, handmade art for the paper enthusiast.
I believe there is something romantic about whimsical handwriting + illustration; there is something so simplistically beautiful about pen and paper — the same goes for white tulips and Sundays.
I love pen + ink; I love its flourishes, its movement, its imperfections. Calligraphic pen + ink is most often associated with handwritten correspondence or official documentation, but pen + ink is also a medium for creating simple illustration. I have practiced my penmanship, and drawn freehand, for as long as I can remember. I am thrilled to witness the resurgence of calligraphy, and the renewed appreciation for handmade art during the digital age.
Charlotte is my adoptive home. I love this little city and all its charm. My husband and I love the outdoors, spontaneity and adventures.
