New Glasgow
I have worked as a calligrapher, illustrator and designer since 2008. In that time, I have designed for greeting card companies, big brands, lettered for book publishers and fashion designers. I specialize in elegant calligraphy created with the pointed pen: traditional copperplate and spencerian, and a more loose & organic modern pointed pen style. I also love creating lovely block capital letters from the medieval, Victorian and art-nouveau era. My illustration style tends to be inspired by the golden age of illustration, a time in which elegant illustration flourished during the late victorian period.
Workshops and Activities 
Below is some of my workshop offerings: Pointed pen flourishing Embellished drop capitals Floral pointed pen Watercolour & gouache colour calligraphy Addressing envelopes Elegant modern pointed pen Fun & funky modern pointed pen Copperplate Spencerian traditional cursive handwriting hand lettering For the school system, I suggest beginner copperplate classes, and traditional cursive handwriting. Children can begin calligraphy as of age 8. Small group classes tend to work best for pen and ink traditional calligraphy lessons.
