PRICE - Originals
For original, one-of-a-kind calligraphic art, the charge is $2 per word with a 25 word minimum. For this price, I can do your work in black on white, or in colors of your choice. Included will be simple collage work if you desire, similar to what you see on this website.
I can even come to your home an write on your wall for $5 per word!
All special orders have an additional $25 set-up fee.
CHOOSE THE SIZE AND THE WORDS YOU WANT. The Index on the Library Index page is sorted by Categories; the Titles of all pieces in the Category are shown. Provide the Title, and size of the piece you want (see sizes in the Price List below). If there are more than one shown of the title you want, be sure to let me know which color scheme you prefer.
PRINTS The prints are computer scanned from my originals and printed on my studio computer using inks that are of color fastness comparable to watercolor.
ORIGINAL COLLAGE These pieces incorporate original collage work with a reproduction of the words you see in the catalog. No two are ever exactly the same. The finished pieces will be very much like the pieces you see in the Print Gallery. Choose the color scheme of your preference; I am able to match most colors requested.
SIZE Be aware that if you choose a lengthy verse, the size of the finished piece will affect the legibility of the words! For instance, the Desiderata should not be ordered smaller than 8x10, before matting. The Children's ABC's is best at 11x14, not matted.
MATTED or NOT MATTED? I have a limited source of mats; if you want an odd size matted, perhaps you should consider taking it to a custom framer. The 5x7 image will fit into an 8x10 mat; the 8x10 image mats up to 11x14. Not all colors of mats are always available to me. I will choose appropriate colors for the chosen piece; if you have a strong color preference, please let me know.

Many of the pieces you find on this site have been created at the request of a client.
When the author of the words are known, I always credit the person who wrote them, even though I may not know first hand the original source.
If you are the author of a piece and I have been unable to reach you for permission to use your words, please contact me.
From time to time I am assigned a project to write out words of uncertain origin;
those pieces will be attributed to "Anonymous" or "Author Unknown."
If you find a piece for whom you know the author,
please contact me with that information. - Thank you!
