Ladybug Art & Calligraphy Studio was established in July of 1975 by Susan Mae Hull. Ladybug Art Studio first opened a retail studio in Clairemont Square Shopping Center in 1982 and eventually moved to Kensington, an historic neighborhood of San Diego in 1985. Ladybug Art Center displayed the work of dozens of local professional artists, including Susan's. In May of 2017, Hull closed the retail space and shifted to creating art and offering art classes from her home studio. She is an award-winning artist for her watercolors, pastels, plein air and portraits.
Susan is the go-to calligraphist for San Diego and beyond. She has lettered projects for sports teams, corporations, films, private individuals, Universities and pre-schools. When the Old Globe Theatre suffered a devastating fire, Hull was chosen to letter the invitations for the opening of the new theatre. She also created the Memorial Plaques for the lobby and lettered two books for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Susan is the primary calligraphist for the University of San Diego creating dozens of framed presentations which hang in multiple buildings on the University campus. She is a member of the San Diego Museum of Art Artist's Association, San Diego Watercolor Society, International Society of Pastel Artists, and the Society for Calligraphy among many others.
Susan Mae Hull is a 4th generation San Diegan, born January 5, 1946. Susan entered the professional art industry as a Drafting Technician for the County of San Diego from 1972 to 1974. Later, while in charge of Ladybug, she controlled all aspects of daily operations, including personnel, advertising, public relations, scheduling, management of facilities & utilities & all the “ten thousand things” entailed in running one’s own business. Her priority is always to create a community for everyone from professional artists to the youngest beginner, and as always making sure your "art problems are solved".
