I loved working on this large-scale Charles Darwin quote, commissioned by a client for her father's birthday.
I used walnut ink, which is quickly becoming a strong favorite. Walnut ink also felt like a great choice for such naturalistic sentiments.
Yes. I wrote a letter to a cat.
I'm living in London this summer, so it was a delight to get a tiny taste of a classic British wedding while working on some calligraphy for Caroline and Ben. I worked on their stylish invitation suite earlier, so it was a pleasure to get to see how some table numbers and place cards looked at the reception.
Warmest congratulations, Caroline and Ben!
I was delighted to play a small part in this sophisticated courthouse elopement shoot, which was recently featured on Once Wed. I provided the calligraphy for the vows, in light gray gouache on a textured watercolor paper.
I really love how this simple and elegant shoot turned out! See more images on Once Wed.
(The models are engaged in real life, which is so sweet! They are perfectly charming.)
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!
