Katharine has been fascinated by calligraphy and illuminated pages since childhood, when she learned basic italic script at the age of seven after school in Abu Dhabi. She began creating decorated initials and calligraphed quotations for friends as a teenager, and continued self-taught calligraphic work in gothic, roundhand and Old English scripts through her university years. Katharine promotes amateur calligraphy through her website, calligraphy-skills.com and continues to improve her own calligraphy skills through study of teaching manuals and short courses at the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts (London) and West Dean College. In her (not so copious!) spare time Katharine paints miniatures and travels with her husband. She loves having long conversations about the relationship between art and craft.
