The Story behind the Font
My mother, Louise Bellucci Cantoni, was always doodling the alphabet while she talked on the phone to her sister Kay. I was mesmerized by her perfect Palmer method penmanship. She was also a self taught artist who obliged me and my teachers whenever I volunteered her for a classroom bulletin board design. In addition, she wrote children’s books and magazine articles based on the things she was most passionate about, her children and her faith. She did all of this while raising 7 children and working part time. She showed me that you could lead a creative life while raising children and that a messy house or laundry not always getting done was worth the price:). I followed this model when my children were young and I’m proud that my fonts are purchased by many women who are attempting the same.
Her sister, Kay Bellucci Johnson, a math teacher who didn’t have any children of her own, set about spoiling all of her nieces and nephews in the best way possible; with lots of time and attention. For me, she went above and beyond. She set up a desk in her spare bedroom with card stock and a lazy susan filled with colored markers and pencils, and let me spend time alone creating greeting cards with hand lettering and drawings. She and my mother were sure Hallmark and American Greetings would come calling.
Their brother, my uncle Jerry Bellucci, was an artist in the U.S. Army. He lived in San Antonio, far away from my home town of Erie, Pa. There was a beautiful watercolor painting of his hanging in my grandfather’s house that I studied every time I went there. When he came to visit he always took time to look at my art portfolio and point out the good qualities of my work. When I moved to Texas I had the opportunity to visit with him and was honored when he gifted his art supplies and old files of his artwork to me.
I can’t begin to think of how my creative life would have come about without the influence and encouragement of these three people who are now gone. So it was only fitting to honor them by naming my first font after them. Bellucci, their actual last name, was already the name of a font, so I simply added an ‘a’. I hope that this story inspires you to live a creative life and to honor the people who have made that possible.
