Hello From Canada
« on: November 06, 2019, 08:21:28 PM »
Hello Everyone!

My name is Bev and I live in Alberta, Canada, although I am originally from the UK.  I have lived this side of the pond for nearly 10 years.

I began learning calligraphy earlier this year.  I had always loved looking at the calligraphy work of others but never tried it myself.  So this year, I took a leap of faith and picked up a pointed pen.  I absolutely love it.  I know I have a lot to learn and that is one of the reasons I joined the forum, so I may gain some knowledge from all of you.

I realize it is all about practice, practice and more practice!!  In the short time since I picked up my pointed pen, I have seen an improvement and I feel more confident writing than I did on day one.  I am excited to see how my work looks in 6 months and 1 years time.

Thank you all for posting, I am busy reading everything on here that I can!

Hi, Bev!
Welcome and have fun! Pointed pen is so addictive!! I started about eleven months ago and have practiced daily about forty minutes average each morning. I work two jobs, so the quality is still touch-and-go. Iím striving for more consistency with my letters, which will come in time, I'm sure. This is a great forum to find encouraging news and exemplars to follow during the learning process.  :)
