The Emily Behind Emily
Hey there! I'm Emily, the hand-lettering and calligraphy artist behind Emily Elle Designs. My name is actually Emily Loesch (pronounced "Lash"), but since that's weird to spell and pronounce, I replaced the "L" of my last name with it's more elegant looking homophone "Elle."
While I've always had an affinity for the hand-written, it wasn't until November 2017 that I was "officially" introduced to the art of hand-lettering when I began bullet journaling. I quickly fell in love with the craft and have since been working diligently to hone it.
I'm 25 years old and have lived in Wichita, Kansas my whole life. I graduated from Friends University in 2016 with a BA in English, and soon after became a full-time banker.
When I'm not working as a banker or running EE Designs, you will likely find me riding my bike, lifting weights, cuddled up with a good book and my sweet white kitty Olaf, or nerding out about Game of Thrones with my boyfriend Dakota. I am also a musician; I've played the viola for 15 years and still actively play in several local groups throughout the year. Throughout college I sang in a few vocal ensembles as well, including a Jazz Vocal group for 3 years.
I have a huge family whom I love dearly, and playing board games and cards with them is another one of my favorite ways to relax in my downtime.
Some other random tidbits about me for those of you still reading:
I'm an INTP, and an Enneagram 5w6
I'm the daughter of a Kenyan immigrant
I'm barely 5 feet tall!
My dream travel spots are Ireland, Greece, and Japan
