My name is Deborah Taylor. I am a wife, calligrapher, author, creative visionary, and co-founder of The Writer's Inkhorn International. I also love to write, crochet, read, and travel, but most importantly, I am a God-fearing believer. As a creative, my world is driven by God, the Father (Yahweh), God, the Son (Yeshuah) and God, the Holy Spirit (Ruach Hakodesh).
My interest in hand lettering began in grade school. While learning cursive writing I was fascinated with beautiful handwriting. I recall trying to imitate writing styles, especially my mom and dad, who I believed had the most elegant spenciarian penmanship. But, for some reason, I could never replicate it and, in all truthfulness, I secretly became flustered with my own lettering style.
As a creative visionary art is part of my DNA. I love colors, pens, writing, crocheting, and co-creating with Holy Spirit to see my artistry come to life.
The journey of The Writer's Inkhorn International began in 2005 while seeking a name for my calligraphy business. I wanted a good name. Initially, I sought names from others, but was never satisfied, so I turned to prayer and studying the word. While reading the book of Ezekiel I fell asleep. When I woke I picked up at the ninth chapter of Ezekiel when my answer appeared.
Then He called out in my hearing with a loud voice, saying, “Let those who have charge over the city draw near, each with a deadly weapon in his hand.” And suddenly six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his battle-ax in his hand. One man among them was clothed with linen and had a writer’s inkhorn at his side. They went in and stood beside the bronze altar.
Ezekiel nine was my summons to the bronze altar to fulfill all that He has commanded. Our mission has evolved over the years as we learned the importance of allowing God to be THE WRITER and we His INKHORN. Our passion is to equip and inspire creatives to lead significant and Kingdom-driven lives and to prosper as entrepreneurs in the marketplace.
