My name is Amy Cash, and I'm a Birmingham, Alabama-based calligrapher. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Alabama. I work as a digital manager for an international trade magazine company by day. I started practicing calligraphy in the fall of 2014, and I opened Storied Script in January 2016. I love having a creative outlet, and I have never been so passionate or dedicated to one as I have been with calligraphy. I'm so thankful for the opportunity do what I love and to share it with all of you.
A few fast facts:
I want every puppy to be my friend.
I'm constantly homesick for New York even though I've never lived there.
October is my favorite month.
I love listening to podcasts and live-tweeting television shows.
Why storied script?
I've loved words for as long as I can remember - first writing in my journal as a kid to now dipping an oblique calligraphy pen in ink. And as much as I love creating, I am obsessed with consuming all things scripted. I have a major TV problem. I adore scripted television. I also get extremely invested in characters and plot lines (please don't ask me about the HIMYM finale, I'm still not over it). My love for storytelling does not stop there. I'm an avid reader and a self-proclaimed theatre geek. If you check out my recent Spotify plays I can all but guarantee that Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen and RENT are at the top.
The act of sharing someone else's journey with a person that would have no way to experience it otherwise is powerful. That's what good television and theatre writing does. So, when creating my business I wanted my love of scripted content and for sharing a journey and story with someone to be part of the name.
