WeddingsWe’re all familiar with the many stationery pieces of formal weddings and the etiquette that accompanies them. Well, somewhat anyways. We know of them, but the details are fuzzy and overwhelming. Part of my job as your wedding artist, and as your wedding etiquette guide, is to ease you through the formalities and the many decisions to be made. The other part is obvious. To create lovely, original wedding stationery that expresses the essence of who you are as a couple. Warm and wanted. That is how your guests will feel!
InstructionFor over 20 years, I've been teaching students the art of calligraphy. I offer beginner and intermediate classes in historic hands (that’s what we calligraphers call particular calligraphy styles) such as Italic, Foundational, Gothic and Uncial. Beginner classes start with an overview of materials, proper pen grips and writing angles and progress to hands-on lettering of a particular calligraphy style. My more advanced classes include projects such as poems, invitations and decorative envelopes.
HappeningsAs a calligrapher obsessed with all things paper, ink and art, I find myself participating in far more events, exhibits and charities than seem possible even to me. Ah, but that is my obsessive joy and personal indulgence! Read along to see what I’ve been up to and to view my latest artwork.
