What I do

(besides looking  super focused and wise with my Gandalf gaze)

Five or six years ago I discovered my passion for calligraphy and letters and ever since I learned as much as I could about them. My path led me to lettering-based projects and three years ago I decided to quit my daytime job as a graphic designer and start working on my own.

I use ink, dip pens, brush pens, all sorts of nibs or weird handmade pens. Depending on the project, I write on paper, walls or directly on the computer screen. Teaching and sharing knowledge is a big part of my work, in the past four years, I held around 40 calligraphy workshops on different scripts.
