Hello from UAE!
« on: October 18, 2022, 03:20:12 AM »

I am Sarah Faisal, 24, originally from Kannur, Kerala, India. Right now, I reside in UAE along with my husband. I started brush lettering in 2016 and then moved on to copperplate calligraphy in 2020. I love all things nibs and ink. Right now, I am about to start learning Spencerian. It's my dream to have a calligraphy business, of which I am slowly laying my foundation.

I am so happy and earnest to be here. It's funny how I found about this forum only now... but better late than never right!

Hi, Sarah!  Welcome to the Forum!  My daughter, a lawyer like me, lived in Abu Dhabi for 4 years! She has now returned to Texas, United States, & is in Houston. We visited Abu Dhabi & Dubai & enjoyed it very much! :D

I have (very basic) Italic & (pretty good) Copperplate. I tried to conquer Spencerian, but I have too much Copperplate in my hand. I was taking a (I think third?) class with Harvest Crittendon & she stopped by my desk, to check on my progress. She said, “You have very good Copperplate.  Why are you attempting Spencerian?”  I said, “Well, I love Spencerian!”  She patted my hand & said, “Well, honey, it doesn’t love you back!”  She was 100% right & I have abandoned that quest!  ;D  I hope that you are more successful in your journey than I was!

At any rate, I’m glad that you are here!  Welcome!
