Hangul help

Help me find someone with Hangul calligraphy skills.

When I travelled to Korea to adopt our daughter, the proprietor of the store where we buy our name stamps heard that I was adopting and made a lovely calligraphy of our daughter's Korean name. I would like to find someone to make something similar for my son. We live near Boston, if that helps.

In Korean, it's 서예, or [suh-yeh].

Boston has a Korean population, although not as large as NYC/LA (obviously since it's a smaller city), so I'd suggest asking around Korean churches in Somerville. For example, this afterschool program (run by a church) teaches calligraphy. Perhaps the instructor would be willing, or could refer you to someone who would be?

Are you sure it's Hangeul and not the Chinese characters from which the Korean name derives? I ask because Koreans almost always use the latter for their stamps.

It seems as if Koreans may be increasingly using Hangul as a way of asserting a national identity. In any case, we explicitly wanted Hangul characters, and that's what we got :).
