5 Years Experience in Calligraphy - Spencerian & Engrosser Script.


I have been exposed to Calligraphy for close to 5 Years. Everything started as my hand writing was not good at all. I committed myself to improve and obsessively work on my hand writing. I found several books and websites. I have practiced both Spencerian and Copperplate since then - writing pages and pages and understanding the art form - my writing gradually started improving, every letter I wrote became a point of self criticism up to this point. All this led to create my own FB Page and Instagram - to this point I have enjoyed the art and I am passionate about it - I enjoy teaching this art to others. I also collect Old fountain pens, have numerous Oblique Pend holders as well as inks. I am an Engineer by trade.
