Penelope Culbertson

I was fortunate enough to study with the Master Professor of Calligraphy, Lloyd Reynolds, at Reed College. He really encouraged his students to “Pass it on” and I have been doing that for 50 years. Showing people how the edged pen and the pointed pen can be used to make beautiful letters has been a life long interest. The Fairweather Gallery in Seaside, Oregon features my calligraphy. I show at the Oregon Society of Artists and various annual shows in Portland. I have also been a painter for the last 30 years and often combine calligraphy and watercolor.
