I’m Lauren, the designer and calligrapher behind Hemlock Ridge Designs.


The Hemlock journey started in May 2018 when I was gifted a ticket to a calligraphy class, and I was immediately hooked. By June of that year, I had started my Instagram page, now called @hemlockridgedesigns, to document my projects and share with interested family and friends. Two years and many projects later, I jumped in head first to officially launch Hemlock Ridge Designs, inspired by the name of the street where I grew up.

I live in Boston with my boyfriend and my many plant babies, but you’ll commonly find me in Maine or Cape Cod spending time with family. While I majored in Math and Finance in college, I’ve always loved stretching into my creative side as well. I’m constantly inspired by nature and fascinated by all types of design, and I love learning new things, so it’s never too long before I’m trying a new craft, project or medium (and I love it that way).


When I’m not working on HRD projects or spending time at my day job, I enjoy playing sports (always down for a game), watching documentaries, and experimenting with recipes in my very small kitchen.
