Shinah Chang

SHINAH CHANG is a whiskey-loving, curse-word slinging, Harvard-trained former corporate attorney who left everything behind to find her passion. Shinah spent her entire life on the straight, “proper” path. She went to an Ivy League college, then a prestigious Law School then worked her butt off in a big international law firm. But, after one too many days of uninspiring work and nights of sleeping under her desk, she decided she had to reclaim her life! She quit her law job and explored so many creative avenues – knitting, woodworking, drawing, graphic design. But CALLIGRAPHY is what she fell in love with. Shinah needed plenty of inspiration along the way, but the usual sugary, fluffy stuff about beauty and dreams didn’t reflect what she was really feeling. So she created Crooked Calligraphy to spread creativity, courage, and honest, gritty life inspiration through calligraphy. Crooked Calligraphy has worked with huge brands like Disney, Anthropologie, Jo Malone, and Dom Perignon, but Shinah’s favorite work is teaching calligraphy and encouraging her students to look their fears in the face and move toward a life that will make them happy.
