More About Your Committee




Who Are You?
Valerie Keevers

What Position/s do you hold at Calligraphy Southscribes?
Secretary and Public Officer.  Past President.

How long have you been involved with Calligraphy?
25 years

Why Calligraphy?
My love of colour and design, words and heraldry drew me to calligraphy as a creative outlet, when I closed my dressmaking business.

Favourite Hand and Why?
Uncial and all forms of Italic because I find them expressive and adapt easily to whatever words I am working with.  However I use all scripts from time to time.

Favourite Piece of Calligraphy Gear and Why?
The flexible pen, as I can re-create any script to highlight the emotion of the words in a piece whether it is traditional or modern in design.

Most successful Calligraphy tip?
Practise and more practise in the early stages of your adventure into calligraphy develops an undying love of the fine art and all the associated arts.

Continuing to bring this beautiful art to the attention of people, so that it does not disappear into the sands of time, only to be lost again for hundreds of years.  By using the electronic media and any other means to our advantage, increase our membership so that we can influence others particularly the younger generation to see the advantage of using knowledge that has survived for centuries and is the basis of their taken for granted, writing skills.
