About Mary Ann

A certified handwriting analyst since 1994, Mary Ann Matthews is the owner of handwriting.ca. Having a background in Human Resources as the Staffing Coordinator for a major real estate developer, Mary Ann’s area of expertise is in compatibility issues – whether it’s learning about that new person in your life, hiring a nanny for your children hiring a new employee, building a team, or finding out why a person gets along better with some people rather than others.

“Handwriting is really ‘brain’writing”, she says. “We can’t run away from our brain, no matter how hard we try.”


Mary Ann gives workshops, seminars, presentations and keynote speeches. Over the past 20 years, Mary Ann has spoken to a wide variety of audiences. She often is quoted as saying, “It doesn’t matter if we print or write. That trail of ink that we leave as our pen travels across the page really does tell our story. What you write or print comes from your conscious mind. How you write or print it comes from your subconscious mind.”

Mary Ann has made radio and TV appearances on Toronto Life, Talk Local, EZ ROCK 97.3, Riley, Neighbour to Neighbour, the Erin Davis Show, Chat TV, Dufferin-Peel Living, Daytime TV Show, City Magazine, and Girlz TV.
