Guild members in Crestwood Court Art Space.

Saint Louis Calligraphy Guild members welcomed logo and font designer Julian Waters for a weekend of italic exploration.  A Friday night lecture introduced us to much of Julian’s extensive portfolio of hand lettered calligraphic art.

Two full days of instruction in improving our italic hands followed.

Technology allowed us to see minute twists of his pen on a large screen display as Julian Waters demonstrated his calligraphic skill.

About Carol

A professional calligrapher for 30 years, I have hand written calligraphy in every size from business card to banners, including a full size reproduction of the U.S. Constitution. I specialize in Copperplate and elegant calligraphy for celebrations and parties. I stumbled into this art when my professor at Washington University told me "You could make money lettering." This was quite a surprise, as I had not seen any specific use of my talents beyond teaching children. As a result of designing my wedding stationery clients magically appeared. Balancing a family of four children and two big dogs with Bruce, my artistic time and available energy have varied considerably thru the years. Now I am happy to report that calligraphy is at the top of my activity list.
