Small squares were written
with stylized Asian characters
designed to run off the corners.

They were then framed and arranged
into a patchwork grid for a
Larson-Juhl booth design.


JCM Corporation

A series of four 48"x96" layered
walnut ink panels were designed
for their new corporate lobby.

The Japanese characters Love, Peace,
Harmony and Prosperity were written
as 24" resist forms
overlaid with calligraphic sentiments.



Callimats are the integration
of fine art calligraphy
and customized framing,
where the two combine to create
a unified piece of fine art.

Common commissions have included
special quotations,
lyrics, and vows as thank yous
and anniversary gifts.
