Thank you so much for visiting my page! My hand lettering/calligraphy journey started while I was in college. I learned the secret of faux calligraphy (thick on the downstrokes) and my notebooks and journals soon became filled with all sorts of lettering practice. At some point in time my friends realized I could "write pretty" so I began making signs for them. At the end of 2021 I decided to turn my sign making into a business and I launched Markings by Monica!

I am a Christian and my faith is the most important part of my life. My husband is the youth director at our church and I love getting to serve alongside him. During the day I work as a structural engineer, but when I am not working I love spending time with friends and family, going for runs, gardening, and cuddling with my dog Emmett! I am always down for a Chick-fil-a run or to watch any of the High School Musical movies. I am also a die hard UCLA fan #gobruins

I am so glad you are here and so excited at the chance to get to work with you! 


Hello! I'm Monica!
