I'm a calligrapher & lettering artist... words inspire me, and I try to capture the spirit of them in everything that I create. I often work on canvas or handmade paper & love creating texture or layers of words or colour. I'm a paper addict too & have more paper than I could ever hope to use... but hey, there are worse vices!
I have taught calligraphy in adult education & led workshops for calligraphy groups in the UK, always enjoying the sharing of inspiration with others. For a while I sold my work through my own gallery along with the work of others, but eventually sold up when I began to travel with my partner wherever he was working.
I stepped away from calligraphy for a while, but the lure of the pen & paint soon called me back, and etsy is proving to be the perfect venue for me. I have my shop, I can create, but I'm not tied to being in one…

handmade paper, textures, ruling pens, any paints, any colours, walnut ink, canvas, dip pens, brushes, anything that makes marks, too many papers to mention, but my favourite of the moment is Tsasho from Bhutan
