Greetings from California!
« on: March 05, 2015, 05:51:53 PM »
Hi everyone!

My name is Elizabeth and I started out in calligraphy learning italic with the broad edge pen and then addressing my own wedding invitations...well, years ago! However, while raising a family I pursued other art media such as watercolor and papermaking which I also love. Now that the kids are grown and have moved away, I have rediscovered my passion for calligraphy, especially copperplate! I am so addicted!

I am so happy and grateful to find this forum! I hope to learn a lot and also share what I discover along the way on this new adventure with pen and ink!
