In 2010 I was awarded the Rivington Travel Scholarship in order to visit the International Calligraphy biannual exhibition in Moscow. I went specifically to see giant Eastern calligraphy, as this has influenced my art work for many years. The range and depth of calligraphy work from around the world was truly inspiring. I knew I had to become a calligraphy Master, so began the long journey with the Society of Scribes and Illuminators, London. I have now completed the Advanced Training Scheme and am still learning.
