Kits and Books

When I started to teach calligraphy based projects, I found my students were having problems sourcing equipment. This problem was compounded when the design packs were released. So I started to make the kits, each kit includes information about the equipment with exercise sheets. They were created as an introduction to this decorative art form.

The books started with my love of traditional central European Folk Art. Living in an English speaking country, on the other side of the world, I found very little instruction on the old techniques. I would bring books back from Europe that my husband would translate. I would then interpret the designs and techniques to suit both the climate and products I use. The results finally made it into the following books.
