emerging calligrapher in Britain to her selection as one of the youngest
fellows of the Society of Scribes and Illuminators in London. Trace her
development through framed artworks and open portfolios as she creates her
masterpiece, the "Roundel of the Seasons" as well as her commission of Dylan
Thomas' book Under Milkwood produced using her modernized Carolingian hand

decades highlights the emergence of her work's singular interplay between
technical mastery of the lettering arts and the most contemporary approaches
in breathtaking works of visual artistry. Prints of her work, in archival

Calligraphy, already recognized as a masterful calligraphy test, will be
