Finding new ways to keep an ancient art alive...

At some point, when I realized I'd been calling myself an artist but working as a manager for restaurants, something had to change. I'd given up for a while after a discouraging run in traditional university art programs. Finding the mentors and teachers I needed by joining calligraphy guilds, I found the training in traditional gold leaf illuminating, calligraphy and book making. It also seemed important to give back and help other artists who may not have fit into modern academic training as I experienced. So I began to beta-test an informational resource website for the calligraphic & book arts and begin teaching.
Needing to start making things, I came up with the idea of a calendar - 12 images and a timeline! and have been plowing ahead ever since. I don't have a brick & mortar shop, so became space to start from.
As is often the case, sales began slowly and mostly to friends & family. Through specialty shops in Canada and the US my production has grown to reach wider audiences, maybe even you!?
