Meet Evelyn


All about Evelyn Cunningham, the coffee loving, dog snuggling artist and owner of Letterlyn Studio

Hello, my name is Evelyn Cunningham, the entrepreneur behind Letterlyn Studio. I am an artist, calligrapher and educator for work, and an adventurer, avid reader and writer in my time off. I grew up in Coastal Virginia, where you can't drive 10 minutes without hitting a body of water and where history and beauty run thick. I moved to Northern Virginia for college, where I absorbed as much poetry, art and bookmaking as I could before graduation.

I married my partner in adventure, Dakota, and moved to Norfolk to be with him. Working and living in Norfolk was great, but I felt a huge void in my life. That void was a creative outlet. Unfortunately, my usual mediums required more equipment and space than my apartment had to offer. And so, I searched for another outlet. What started as a passionate hobby, turned into a calligraphy business.

When we moved out of our tiny apartment and into a house, I was able to physically expand my work. And so, Letterlyn Studio began to take shape into the creative studio for events that it is today: where couples' stories are cherished, unique materials are given the love they deserve, and adventure fuels creativity.

Other fun things to know about me: I am an animal person through and through. Dakota and I own three misfit dogs. A wild and cuddly chihuahua mix named Nixon, a chow chow fluffball mix named Jezebel, and a black lab mix named Pacho. It's always wild over here with the wagging tails and crazy play times. But, my rescue mutts are the best (even if Pacho eats shoes sometimes). I would have cats and rabbits and a pet pig if left to my own devices, but we've agreed that three pooches are enough.

I love really bad tv shows just as much as the good ones. You know, the crime shows where the same thing happens in every episode and the over-acting is superb. I eat those up. Don't get me wrong, I love a well done show. In fact, analyzing a good film or tv series is a great way to spend a Saturday night. But, when I am just trying to relax, I am all about some Criminal Minds or Law and Order. I would say it is a guilty pleasure, but I don't feel guilty about it.
