Hi, I’m Courtney Xu, a calligrapher and designer based in Queens, New York. I’m here for any of your calligraphy, design, and aesthetically pleasing needs you may have! I'm definitely a sucker for good packaging and all things stationery. When I’m not lettering, I'm either sipping on some bubble tea, or devouring a noodle soup.
Bristle Sprouts Co. was created during a time of uncertainty in what to do and where to go. With a lot of free time on my hands, I decided to try something new and out of the blue, and so I delved into modern calligraphy. I immediately fell in love with this medium. Through this creative outlet, I learned that along with the bristles of a brush, I am also a “bristle” rooted in the kingdom of God. He never fails to grow me, and I hope to “sprout” good fruit for Him as this journey continues. I am privileged to have this opportunity to create, and I hope you find joy in receiving these pieces as I have in creating them.
Fun Fact: Brussels sprouts have become my favorite vegetable after creating this brand!
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.” (John 15: 1-2)
