Sally has been a lover of letters since she first learned to print in grade school. To this day she is inspired by the calligraphic line, moved by the rhythm of letter and word spacing and in awe of the texture they all create. Sally has created meticulous work utilizing traditional tools such as vellum, tempura, gold, stick ink, and quills. She also experiments with abstract forms using a variety of modern and traditional materials. Her lettering can be found painted on fabric, washed onto paper, glazed onto ceramic, etched into glass, or cut from paper. Currently she is experimenting with creating hand-made books to house her calligraphy. She also creates invitations, envelopes and place cards (often a calligrapher’s bread and butter) for weddings and other special events. Commissions for one-of-a kind pieces or event lettering are always welcome.
