This is a little reminder that I will be living in London this summer and thus unfortunately unable to accept calligraphy jobs from now (15 April) until after 8 August 2016.
I look forward to hearing from you and working on your projects in August! Thanks for your patience and understanding. I hope to come back with lots of beautiful paper and ink from the United Kingdom and the continent!
It was such a delight to host my first calligraphy workshop on 19 March at Blenheim Vineyards, as part of Blenheim's Library Series.
We had a full class of 15 fun (and naturally gifted!) ladies, and enjoyed a cozy afternoon in the vineyard library with a glass of fabulous Blenheim wine.
A special treat was having my former foster puppy, sweet Laszlo, there. Laszlo belongs to the head of events at Blenheim, and I haven't seen him since he was a wee pup. He has turned out to be such a handsome boy!
I really enjoyed this foray into teaching, and I hope to host more beginner's calligraphy workshops in the future. Many thanks to Blenheim for the opportunity and to all of the lovely students!
I will be living in London this summer, which I am very excited about, but it means that I will not be able to accept calligraphy jobs from 15 April through 8 August 2016.
While I am sad to miss all of the hubbub of the wedding season, I am excited to pick up projects again this fall. Thanks for your patience and understanding!
Have you wanted to learn the basics of modern calligraphy? You're in luck, because I am excited to share the news that I will be teaching a modern calligraphy workshop on Saturday, March 19, at Blenheim Vineyards!
It will be a fun afternoon at Blenheim to play with ink and nibs and sip a bit of Virginia wine! Bring your friends!

Just in time for the holidays, I have some calligraphy prints for sale. Check them out in the shop!
Prints start at $25.
Prints can also be framed for you in advance, which adds a nice extra touch and saves you some time and money. I love this option; I'm always pressed to find suitable, sensible frames when giving art.
PLUS, between now and 25 December, proceeds from print sales will benefit New City Arts Initiative, a nonprofit that's near and dear to my heart. New City Arts aims to benefit local artists and create engagement between artists and the community in my town, Charlottesville, Virginia.
Finally having my own room to practice calligraphy has been the greatest gift. I feel like I have more mental space and creative license with my work.
That said, I've been tinkering with some of my styles. Notably, BLOOM has taken a slightly different form than it has in the past, and I like the fun, wild direction it's following. I'm still not sure where I want to take Basho; still musing on that.
Ready for spring over here!
