Hello, I'm Eithna.
I live in the beautiful West of Ireland and this is my first time taking part in ALAW.
I am not a calligrapher but it was my favorite discipline in Art Class in High School, more years ago than I care to remember. I am an artist/painter and I use pen and ink allot in my work.
I have decided to use a type writing stamps to make my letters and to incorporate them into collages. I'm using an old map, as I love the tiny markings on maps also some fabric and stitching. I don't plan projects in advance I like to let them evolve and here already there seems to be some nature (birds/trees) emerging.
I am looking forward to getting to know you all and seeing where this project brings me.
So with a little trepidation I give you my A, B, C, and D I am away next week so I'm getting these in early and I found once I started I could not stop!
If you want to know more about me or my work you can find me at http://www.littlebitofblue.com/
