Like the graceful curves of her renown calligraphy, Jane Fischer of Carolyn Jane’s path to becoming a chalk artist and expert hand letterer has been long and winding. She’s lent her talent for calligraphy, illustration, and chalk design to local businesses for years, and if you’ve walked into a Central Market store any time between 2006 and today, chances are you’re already familiar with her work. It was that exact gig that she credits as her big break into the business. “I've always loved lettering and drawing but it wasn't until that job did I realize it was something that I could make a career out of.” Fast forward to the present and Fischer has done just that. And while the San Antonio native has established herself as an Austin creative power force, she’s also earned national recognition from popular blogs such as Style Me Pretty and Refinery 29 for work that’s a little more personal—wedding invitations. “I am always so touched and honored whenever someone asks me to be a part of their wedding,” Fischer says. “Since the invitations are the first thing the guests see, I feel a unique responsibility to wow them and provide a little preview for the beautiful and memorable wedding to come.” She is currently working on a line of wedding stationary templates that couples can purchase.
