About me

About me:

I am a qualified teacher, and professional calligrapher working to commission, creating works for exhibition/sale, and teaching for almost 40 years. Trained at Reigate School of Art & Design ( calligraphy/illumination/heraldic painting), followed by 3 years as assistant to well-known calligrapher Donald Jackson.  I particularly like experimenting with letterforms and creating calligraphic  works and collages usually based on landscape themes. I also work to commission and teach pastel pet portraits, and do a limited amount of letter carving in stone. I am a longstanding fellow of the Society of Scribes & Illuminators and the Calligraphy & Lettering Arts Society. I am left-handed.


I taught calligraphy on the diploma courses, and later degree course at the Roehampton Institute ( now Roehampton University) for 17 years, and for almost40 years on many short courses throughout the UK, and Europe, and some in the U.S and Japan. I am an examiner for the Calligraphy & Lettering Arts Society diplomas. Designed a calligraphic typeface ’Hamada ‘in conjunction with Linotype. Many  commissions particularly creative panels with prose and poetry, but also formal presentation works.
