Welcome To Drummond Calligraphy

 Drummond Calligraphy Hand Lettering and Illumination will provide for you the lettering and illumination that is only able to be done by hand. While it is true that many aspects of calligraphy can and is done on a computer these days there is nothing like the warmth and feel that is provided when receiving something that has been done by hand. Calligraphy is an artform that has been practiced for thousands of years using decorative handwriting and lettering that is created with both pen and brush. It is not cold like computer printed or offset printed material. It has a life of its own and because of that gives a warmth to those that are seeing and receiving it. That is what I want to be able to provide for you, small works of art that you will be proud to own, to give or to use for parties and or invitations.

I am dedicated to providing you with the hand crafted and hand lettered works of wonder that will amaze your friends and guest. Each lettered and painted piece of art, and it is indeed an art, is done by hand to give you the most pleasing results. Each is unique and never the same as every item that is done, even those that are supposed to be the same, have varying differences due to brush strokes and pen wobbles. That is not to say that they are imperfect but rather to say that each is unique and will never ben just another copy from a machine. Each illuminator and calligrapher will tell you the same even if they are able to make something seem to be an exact copy.

You will never receive something that was printed from a machine from me. I am dedicated to providing you with something that you will cherish for years to come and will work with you to make sure that I know what it is that you want to have made before a drop of ink or paint ever touched paper or parchment. I want to make sure that what you are needing made is going to be made in the best way possible. With that in mind it does take time to letter and paint a scroll, object or letter an envelope. So keep that in mind when you need to have something made and make sure not to wait till the last moment to contact me about a job. I need to make sure that I have the time that is needed to devote to your project so that I can make sure that it is of the highest quality possible from me.

I invite you to look around the site and check out the gallery of sample that are here so that you can get a feel for the work that I am able to do. If you do not see an example of what you are wanting then contact me and we can discuses what it is that you are wanting to have made. I have been doing art and lettering for over 30 years and can reproduce just about any style that you might need.

I look forward to helping you with your calligraphic and illumination needs.
