Artist's Statement

I am a calligrapher, illustrator and graphic designer and have been creating art for as long as I can remember.
A freelance job at a local university hospital many years ago offered me the opportunity to try my “hand” at the art of the calligrapher. Putting pen and ink to paper is magic to me. I love the feel of the paper, the fluid rhythm as the ink glides onto the surface. Time disappears . . . focus is crystal clear . . . the magic of the scribes of centuries past is brought to life. Since the beginning of time, man has been striving to make his words or symbols look beautiful as well as communicating concepts and ideas.
Combining calligraphic hands with artwork to visually enhance the chosen words is a passion of mine. Words and letters become explosions of color in my mind – language is, at once, brilliantly alive to the eye as well as the mind.
