Upcoming exhibit

I'll be presenting my artist's book "If I Forget You" in the online calligraphy exhibit of Symbiosis III, an international calligraphy mentorship program that I've been honored to participate in this year. The exhibit, art sale, and more will take place November 24– December 10. You can find out more here.

Upcoming Italic class

Improve your handwriting and find your creative flow by training your hand to write in the beautiful, legible Italic script. We will study early examples of Italic and discuss its development, as well as the special importance of Portland in the story of Italic calligraphy. Students will gain familiarity with the letterforms and with the use of the broad-edged pen and will complete a simple project by the end of the term. This class is for beginners and anyone who wants to review the basics of Italic.

This eight-week class will run January 18–March 17, 2024, 9:30 am–12:30 pm on Thursdays, at the Multnomah Arts Center in Portland.

Registration opens December 14.
