What fun it was to letter this menu!

Pointed Pen Explorations Workshop

A couple of weekends ago I had the pleasure of teaching for Kaligrafos, the calligraphy guild in Dallas. What a great group of people!  It was a wonderful experience
and I enjoyed nearly every minute of my stay (except for the part where I hurt my toe – but it’s almost better
now {yay!}).

Anyway, Debi Sementelli was my hostess with the mostest and, if you don’t already know, she’s the artist behind the terrific Belluccia font.  Outside of class, we had a great time talking about lettering and fonts and as many other alphabetically related things as possible.

Debi was kind enough to write a lovely review of the workshop so if you have a minute, hop on over and read all about it!

This past October I had the extreme pleasure of working with a bride on accessories for her wedding. As a matter of fact, Jen Lauren Grant is, herself, in the wedding industry, and is a photographer. Here are a couple of photos of the cards I did for her. Anyway, Jen’s photographic work is just beautiful and she has a lovely blog on which she wrote a very nice testimonial about me. Thanks, Jen!


Fa La La La La

No time of year makes me happier than does the one we are in now. I’ve gotten past the big work push for a few days and am looking forward to some time away from drawing board, at least for a day or two.

Christmas brings me much joy, and my hope and wish is that the coming days of this festive season bring you much happiness, as you celebrate with those you love!

Flourished Calligraphy for a Save The Date

This was quite a fun, yet challenging project … designing the “perfect” version of the words Save The Date, in a flourished calligraphic script. The photograph was taken by Elizabeth Messina, and the invitation was designed by my friend Susan at Papel Paper & Press.

Signs for the Bride and Groom

This sign duo is something I created for a recent wedding. What a challenge it was to write large, yet still to keep a “pointed pen” look.
