An Ephemeral Identity


A font illustrates a theme, an era, a mood. The collaboration of the art of calligraphy with the beauty of Art Nouveau alphabets make for a modern elegant invitation.

The inspiration for this font was derived from a French perfume bottle circa 1920. Combing Art Deco and Art Nouveau design books, sheet music, magazine advertisements and the boxes upon boxes of ephemera I store haphazardly in my studio allows me to connect with a time, feel a place, transcend my present state.

Art Nouveau is one of my favorite styles & it inspires my work as well (though in very different ways). I love your calligraphy!

This is just gorgeous! I learned a little calligraphy when I was a teenager - I never had the precision to be very good at it, though. Love this!
