I trained as a Graphic Designer, specialising in Lettering and Typography at Exeter College of Art. After working in Graphics for several years I decided to focus on Calligraphy.
While studying Calligraphy, Illumination and Heraldic Art at Reigate College of Art with Gerald Mynott I received awards from the Worshipful Companies of Painter-Stainers and Scriveners. I am a fellow of the Society of Scribes and Illuminators (SSI) and the Calligraphy and Lettering Arts Society (CLAS) and am a CLAS Accredited Tutor.
My focus over recent years has been on the use of traditional skills and materials, such as the use of quills and gilding on vellum.
