Hey, I’m Jes! I’m a teacher and podcaster by day, a hand-letterer by night, and a traveler any chance I can get! I started hand lettering in 2016 as an effort to recapture my creativity, heal from a heartbreak, and spread a little joy + inspiration into the world. I quickly realized that hand lettering could be more than a hobby for me, and Sprezza Foundry was born! The name comes from the Italian word “sprezzatura”, meaning “nonchalant elegance”. My passion is to spread a little positivity and nonchalant elegance from my home to yours!
