Elaine aka. Nane Big-Mountain

For me, Hand-Lettering combine two powerful tools to uplift our day and enhance happiness:

Creativity and inspiring Quotes!

Hi! That's me!

Hi! My name is Elaine, my friends call me Nane! I am a Hand-Lettering artist (and ex-scientist) who loves creativity, positivity and quotes that make myself and others feel inspired, joyful and with a smile on our face!


 There are two reasons for the name "Big Mountain".


The first reason is a "silly one", but makes sense for me and my family. "Big Mountain" or in Portuguese, Serra Grande, is "another way' to say my family name "Serrão". Serra means "Mountain range"  and the suffix "ÃO" means "bigger" (like "chen" in German for small). It's not grammatically correct, but my family and I use this as a wordplay since a long time.  


The second reason, it's because today I see our lives, our talents and abilities as a "Big Mountain".

You know, we go on and on, we can't see the whole away until the top. Many things are still undiscovered. For a while, I was climbing this "Big Mountain" and I was just waiting to the next step to go higher and higher. I thought, I didn't have time to loseJust "zack zack zack", as the Germans say. Fast, fast, busy, busy! 


Finding Hand-Lettering as a creative balance in my life gave me not only a new hobby but I started re-discovering a "creative side" (forgotten for so long). I started seeing not only my creativity but my whole life as this "Big Mountain". We are climbing it, everyday. We can't see the top. Better than just "keep climbing", what if we also appreciate where we are right now? 


I was always a joyful and positive person, but also very worried and anxious about the future. Getting some time at my routine to be more creative has indeed changed the way I was dealing with everything.


I love "beautiful handwriting," but I also love that Hand-Lettering includes anyone!


When you make Hand-Lettering, you learn to draw letters, not to write them. That's why it doesn't matter if you are satisfied with your handwriting or not, hand-lettering has not requirements! Everyone can learn to draw beautiful letters!


 Hand-Lettering is also the perfect combination of Creativity and inspiring Quotes!


Besides the beauty of the letters, this is a HUGE motivation to me! I like to make this art to inspire me and others to laugh, to be kinder to ourselves, to be more creative, to be more "smart-productive," and of course, HAPPIER! Words are powerful! For me, if you specially choose quotes that fit totally to YOUR personality and uses it to uplift your day, it can make you (and others) smile. I love smiling people! :)


I am here to serve you in one of these ways: Customised Products & Lettering Workshops!
