I live in the Cotswolds and have had a passion for calligraphy all my life.

 

I studied at Gloucestershire College
of Art and Technology and in 1982 gained a Diploma in Graphic Design.

 

I have been involved in Graphic Design all my working life and the experience
of producing balanced layouts has helped my skills as a calligrapher.  

  

I am a member of The Calligraphy and Lettering Arts Society (CLAS), The Gloucestershire Lettering Arts Society (GLA), The Copperplate Special Interest Group (CSIG) and The Spencerian Study Group (SSG). I have gained an Intermediate Diploma in Calligraphy from CLAS. I enjoy the flourishing aspect of calligraphy and this is linked with the elegant style of Copperplate."

There are
many different styles
of calligraphy and
as a calligrapher I can
produce a particular script
to suit the brief. 

Pastel Portraits
are also an art form I  
enjoy. I love the challenge of creating a picture that captures the personality and character of them.
