My name is Anna White, the owner and creator of Ella Ink, a Durham-based calligraphy studio specializing in modern calligraphy for your celebrations and special events.

Ever since childhood, I have always loved art and enjoyed experimenting with different mediums. It was during my first calligraphy class in 2015, when I realized that pen and ink were my favorite. Ella Ink was created as a way to share the beauty of calligraphy with others. 


I love seeing the joy that calligraphy brings to my clients and their guests. I also love to see the excitement calligraphy brings to my students. I am always  honored to share my calligraphy knowledge and passion with others, helping them to start a calligraphy journey of their own.


So who is Ella?  Ella is a combination of my daughters' names (Elena + Lila = Ella). My two girls continue to be my biggest supporters and helpers.

When not behind the pen, I am spending time with my family, exercising, gardening, trying new restaurants, and working as a primary care physician assistant. 

Follow me on Instagram at @ellainkcalligraphy and join me at one of my beginning calligraphy Sip & Script® classes.

I can't wait to work with you!
