    About

    Everything Illuminated

    Ever since I was a boy, I have been inspired by the ancient illuminated manuscript masterpieces. I would spend hours poring over library books about the Lindisfarne Gospels or the Book of Kells or the Ramsey Psalter. I would doodle designs and do mock-up illuminated mansucript versions of letters or homework assignments. Now, after a 10 year hiatus of military service in the US Army Ranger Regiment, I'm rekindling my childhood passion for medieval manuscripts.

    I began studying art and calligraphy at the Academy of Art University in 2013, and as I continue to grow my skills, I am making available some of the work I have done thus far. My long term vision is to create a fully functioning Scriptorium, where the old scribal arts can be studied, practiced, and taught. With the opportunities modern digital technology makes possible, illuminated manuscripts could once again be produced and made available to readers, bringing the magical visual experience to life and connecting readers everywhere with that ancient artistic heritage.

    Please enjoy my shop with the catechetical calligraphy, and check back as I add more!
