Jane Morton Driscoll lives for the relaxing process of creating modern calligraphy pieces. She began learning calligraphy to improve her mental health and ended up pursuing it as a full time career. She works from her home studio to create calligraphy and hand engraving commissions. Jane also teaches calligraphy locally to beginners and improvers and loves using her skills from her previous teaching career to inspire others to learn this rewarding art form.
She uses a traditional pointed dip pen to create her artwork along with a range of different inks. The nib requires precise and delicate handling to create the thick and thin strokes that characterise modern calligraphy. She hand engraves on glass using words and botanicals to create beautiful bespoke gifts for clients.
Jane gets great pleasure from bringing a clients dreams to life on paper, taking great care to involve them throughout the process. She loves using calligraphy on unconventional surfaces from agate slices to ceramic baubles.
