About me

Location St. George, Ontario, Canada
Introduction I am a freelance calligrapher specializing in ornamental penmanship and offhand flourishing. I live in a small village in Ontario, about an hour west of Toronto. I have been happily married to my best friend Chris for over 30 years and we have a precious daughter Holly. I have studied extensively with Master Penman through the organization Iampeth and the Spencerian Saga. I am currently an active member of the Royal City Calligraphy Guild. If I am not working with the pointed pen, I am studying medieval and renaissance illumination or botanical painting techniques. I love to spend time alone in the studio working on my art or outside walking.
