My name is Jo and I live in the Netherlands with my husband and cat.
I started copperplate calligraphy during the summer, by taking Melissa Esplin's class. It was great! In art school I learnt the basics of italic calligraphy, so I wasn't a complete newbie using calligraphy pens. Pointed nibs are something different though!!
Right now I am starting my business as a graphic designer, illustrator and calligrapher. Working on my branding and website, which I hope to launch January 1.
I love seeing your work on Instagram, so inspiring.
I'm JeauAnd and I'd love to InstaMeet you!!
great to hear there are more calligraphers in Europe! I live in Potsdam near Berlin and also started this year with Copperplate (and Spencerian – I think that is so difficult)! I come from a background in graphic design and illustration. I hope to launch my calligraphy web site in the coming weeks …
Good luck with your branding and web site building – I am curious to see your work!
