Christine Colasurdo

As a native Portlander, I began studying calligraphy at age 12. My teachers include Jaki Svaren and Elizabeth Anderson. My work has been shown in juried West Coast exhibits and has been featured in Letter Arts Review, Alphabet, and Bound & Lettered. I have been teaching lettering since 1997 and currently teach at the Multnomah Arts Center in Portland, OR (where I also teach creative writing). My offerings can be viewed in the pdf catalogue at the Multnomah Arts Center web site: http://www.multnomahartscenter.org.
