Last year I began working on a series of flourished musical wedding themes. Here is a scan of one of them entitled simply "Here Comes the Bride!"
Here is a photo of some escort cards I did for a beautiful wedding at a vineyard near Charlottesville, Virginia. The walnut ink and hand painted gold leaves were all done on Fabriano papers from Italy.
Here is a scan of a monogram I recently created for clients in NYC. They will be using it for their personal stationery and thank you cards. I LOVE doing monograms!

Below are some photos plus some scans of an engraved invitation ensemble I recently did for a wonderful Omaha couple. Carrie Ratcliff, a graphic designer with Bozell Advertising, conceived the overall design using beautiful laser cutouts and I carried out the lettering and flourishing. It was engraved in pewter on the most luxurious of Crane's classic papers making addressing envelopes an absolute dream job!
