D'Andrea N. Foy
D’Andrea N. Foy is the Artist and Founder behind the namesake brand, D’Andrea Nicole Calligraphy. The New Orleans native launched her business in 2020, after embarking on her calligraphy journey over two years prior.
With a genuine connection to embodying the New Orleans spirit, her love for jazz music, and strolls down Magazine Street or the famous Quarters, there's really no place like home and NOLA’s undeniable hospitality for her. This, coupled with a deep love for drawing and fashion at a young age lead to the launch of DNC. After years of family and friends encouraging her to share her gifts with the world, the brand was officially born in March 2018 at a coffee shop on Prytania St. in the historic Garden District of New Orleans.
“I like to mark that as the birthplace of my brand because it was my first meeting with a client and first envelope addressing experience, even before picking up a nib and ink. That client found me from a colleague’s recommendation and trusted me to be a part of her daughter’s wedding day. This humble beginning boosted my confidence in myself and my handwriting and led me to pursue my passion today.”
D’Andrea received a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Merchandising from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 2011. It was there that she honed in on her design skill set, passion for her culture, the history and future of fashion, visual arts, Jazz history, and more. However, she’s been doodling and igniting her love for this style of writing since her elementary school days!
DNC is dedicated to elevating your special day with the magical touch of custom calligraphy, infused with the spirit of New Orleans. Whether it’s a wedding, birthday, other momentous celebration, or custom request, she looks forward to collaborating with you for such an occasion!
