Recent Commission - The Four Noble Truths

This was a recent commission for a local customer's Buddhist meditation room.  Most of my special orders are shipped out of state, but in this case, I was able to hand deliver the work and visit with my client, which was a special treat.

Studio Redesign

My studio is in transition, as I design and plan a more creative space;  some things must go! Fellow calligraphers and other artists, if you happen to be looking for any of the following "toys," please contact me by email and I will quote you a price and figure exact postage to your location.

Custom Calligraphy with Collage

This piece was created for a special customer a few months ago. The squares are covered in hand painted papers to add a splash of color.  Lettering can be in black, gold, or a color of your choice.

If you have an idea for a custom order, please contact me by email to discuss the possibilities!

Finding new Joy

Weaving has become one of my new passions, with a wonderful 45 inch floor loom taking up space in my home and my heart. Here are a few of my recent projects.

I am still taking calligraphy commissions on a regular basis, but I also hope to add some handwovens to my collection of items for sale in the very near future. In my spare moments, I'm working on a BA in English and working part time outside the studio. :) So, as you're planning those special gift ideas during the next few months, please plan ahead so that I can give your hand lettered custom work the time it deserves. :) As always, I try to turn projects around as quickly as possible after receiving payment.

What new and exciting calligraphic projects do you have in mind? Please feel free to send me an email with your ideas and inquiries. Hand lettered mats with extra openings for photos have been very popular lately, since they make quick and easy personalized gifts. And small hand bound books (see post below) are also perfect for Valentine's Day, or just any day!

Until next time!
