About Me

My photo
Perhaps you’ve seen my earlier works at Altamira. I am confident, if I could trace my lineage to paleolithic times, I would have been one that ‘wrote’ on the cave walls. I write and teach calligraphy art and painting styles from early historic to contemporary writing. My services range from private commissions to commercial design and calligraphy: wedding, invitations, social events, specialty, resolutions, advertising, books, CD’s, and ad campaigns.

Camaieu or Demi-Grisaille
is a 14th century French painting technique which I offer as a workshop.
It's considered a luxury workshop because of the materials; parchment, gouache and gilding.

  1. It's such a beautiful masterpiece, especially the red and blue design in the backdrop and the Gold work. Its amazing how you add little twists & twirls to your letters and make them look wow!
