I was always alone, being an only child. So I started drawing to entertain myself. I found that I could also write. Mother had a book store, church and religious books and materials. I saw hand written books, a couple of hundred years old. People were still reading them, so I thought I could do lettering like that. Through the years I sort of developed my own font which I call, “Callipeninktion”.
No formal training, just absorbed the materials and styles around me with deep appreciation for the work that scribes did through the ages. Everything in life inspires me, nature mostly. I‛m fascinated by words, spoken or created by others or myself.
