Authentic Expressions is a small business, owned and operated by me :) Elli Gehrmann in rural Alberta of Canada. Back in 1999 I had this dream of creating something unique and beautiful with my hands and I began learning how to work with wood which turned into my love of handcrafting fine wooden fountain pens.

It wasn't long before I realized that my fine wood pens needed ink refills for my customers to be able to keep enjoying them and I expanded my product into the full line of Monteverde Pens and Refills as a Canadian outlet for Monteverde and Yafa Pens.
