Owensquill is a studio of artful contemplation founded by me, Holly Owens, a classically trained lettering artist. Tucked away in the foothills of Eagle, Idaho, Owensquill is where simplicity, whimsy and sophistication meet to create lettering and design.  In this mass-producing world, modern fine hand lettering offers a timeless touch.

My indispensable tools are my dip pen, inkwell, watercolor paper, antique letterpress and imagination.  Also fueling my creativity are my family and the humorous situations in which we find ourselves, my dwarf bunnies who finally stopped multiplying, my mischievous Westie (Millie), Irish fiction, the colors burgundy, olive and sky blue, my kitchen view of the Idaho mountains, growing raspberries, pairing them with chocolate, funky headbands, holding babies and puppies, Thai food, backpacking to get away from it all, and rejoicing when prayers are answered and we witness God’s hand.  And, of course, being captivated by breathtakingly beautiful letters designed by artists WAY ahead of me.

I am also a member of IAMPETH (The International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting) and recently became a member of the Inkspots Calligraphy Guild of Idaho.

If there is a vision you have fostered, a gift you want to offer, or that extra signature sparkle you desire for your guests (or yourself!), I would love to work with you to help bring that vision to life so it will dance on paper.

Many thanks for visiting and browsing my site.  I hope you enjoy it and find inspiration. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
