Graphic arts, Lettering arts, papermaking and book arts are all part of my world. I am past president of Philadelphia Calligraphers' Society and owner of Letterworks Art Studio where I work and play, gathering knowledge of the crafts and working for clients. On most evenings you will find me teaching and sharing my love of letters, paper and book arts. I hope to blog my journey and share a glimpse with you about my world of art.
