signs of our lives calligrapher los ange

hey, hi, hello there!

I’m Alex, the calligrapher, designer, engraver, and hand-lettering artist behind Signs of Our Lives. There are lots of terms you could use to describe me, but the gist of it is - I’m here to create something custom and beautiful just for YOU!

My passions in life include helping and serving others, so I’d love to be able to do that for you or someone you know! Seriously - my favorite quote of all time is, “we all do better when we all do better,” by Paul Wellstone. 


I use a lot of exclamation points, I am obsessed with my two goldendoodles, and I’m always on the hunt for the best restaurants in town. If you’re local to the San Diego / Southern California area, please don’t be shy! Send me a message with your questions, or to say hey!


my favorite things

FAVE TEXTURES: acrylic, marble, leather, wood, + chalkboard of course

NOT-SO-SECRET DREAM: I'm doin it!!! Taking this business full-time!

FAVE MOTTO: "You get in life what you have the courage to ask for." -Oprah Winfrey 

    So ask me if there's something you'd like me to create, because I am ALL EARS!
