My name is Gianna Meschi and I was born and raised in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains of California. I recently graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Environmental Policy Analysis and Planning. I founded Pau Hana Designs in 2019 with the encouragement of friends and family.


Since I started lettering six years ago, I have experimented with other mediums such as wood, acrylic, and die-cut vinyl. My partner is also creative, so we often collaborate together on larger-scale projects that involve power tools (guess I can't be totally trusted). He is also the brains behind my shipping strategies and money management!


Aside from calligraphy and drawing, my passions include gardening, hula, and working as an environmental planner.
