We read so quickly, inundated daily with thousands of words in newspapers, books, television and digital media, but at times a writer has penned a thought succinctly that you want to read again and again. This is a fundamental reason that many calligraphers are so entranced with their craft. I read voraciously, and often find snippets of that I copy out into journals or develop into complex works. But many of my favorite projects work with profound thoughts that my clients bring to me, to be written out in a small book or framed to hang on the wall.
Many of the pieces you see here were commissions, I love to work with the words others have found, bringing my design, lettering and illustration skills to them. If you have a beloved text you would like to see in fine hand lettering, contact me and we will work together to come up with a wonderful image that expresses your ideas and mine. Indeed, this is why I call my website, The Imagined Word.
