Your Wisconsin: The Flowing Script

Local News

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – In the digital age printers and computers keep us efficient. 

But now, pen and paper is having a moment in the design world. 

From wedding invites, to home decor, people are choosing to keep calligraphy in the loop. 

“I love using the brush and the pencil and getting the feel of it on the paper” says artist Robin Oczus. She found her creative outlet in calligraphy. 

“People look at words and they are inspirational, maybe trigger a memory or something like that” she says. 

Oczus is hand lettering those words onto canvases of every texture. “Coffee mugs, wood burning, water colors and now laser cuts” she explains. 

It is a modern take, on a classic skill. “Taking it from a pencil to a wood burner, taking it from a pencil to a paint brush”. Her business, The Flowing Script, specializes in customs orders.

“The lettering trend is huge in decor right now. The farmhouse look is trendy…. You could have wedding vows, or your first song or something like that or a saying that you always tell your daughter and that is in her room” Oczus describes some popular pieces in her collection that spell out the story of people’s lives.

“Every design really triggers and emotion for both the customer and myself. If someone sends me their vows, I know how special they were they day that they were said, every day you walk past it you see something so beautiful” she says, scripting the comeback for calligraphy.
