Calligraphy

I had different teachers, my first one was Jost Hochuli who was inspired by Alfred Fairbank and Eduard Johnston, then I learned a lot of Kate Wolff, who has huge skills in writing the Trajan with the broad nipped brush, and the third one is Barbara Calzolari, she is a real master in spencerian, she got the title of a penman, even though I think they should call her a penwoman. My “Emotions” draft is inspired by the way she writes.
