"The Working Life of a Calligrapher in Contemporary Australia"
lettering artist from Tasmania, Australia, offers us a glimpse of her life as an artist, the opportunities that have arisen for her, in particular the work created for the Commonwealth Government of Australia. These works include four major Apology documents including the Apology to Australia’s Indigenous Peoples and a number of other founding documents housed in the Australian Archives. She will also talk about what type of commissions a modern calligrapher is required to do to remain relevant in a highly technical age.
