THIS IS WHAT I DO. My studio practice Has always encompassed both calligraphy and pictures. I use a variety of materials and tools, both digital and traditional. Although, my focus is transitioning from a freelance business to something that prioritizes my own creative work, I am still taking on some outside projects.
