Greetings! My name is Kathleen Loomis and I have just joined this community of letter lovers. I'm primarily a fiber artist (check my blog here) but have resolved to work more in paper and mixed media this year.
My father was a typographer and I was raised with a love of both calligraphy and type. Although I love beautiful hand-drawn letters, my skills are sadly lacking in this area. In recent years I have been "unblocked" by a fine teacher who helped me realize that handwritten text need be neither legible nor beautiful. (Read about it here.)
I'm also a lover of daily or weekly art projects, so ALAW is something I'm greatly looking forward to participating in.
