FELLOWS’ GALLERIES » JAN PICKETT
Since childhood, my whole life has been a love affair with all forms of art, especially anything involving brushes and pens. Having originally studied Graphics, I work full time as professional Calligrapher, lettering Artist and Illustrator, and enjoy creating exuberantly colourful and fun decorated lettering as well as preparing more serious and formal calligraphic work within the commercial world.
I have been teaching Calligraphy for 25 years and I am a Fellow of both the Society of Scribes & Illuminators and also of CLAS.
A typical week for me is a delightful mix of teaching calligraphy, meeting lots of people and working to deadlines within the commercial world, be it lettering or illustrating…it’s a real pleasure and I feel very lucky to do something that I find so enjoyable.
My book ‘Decorated Lettering’ was published in 2016 and is now in 5 languages.
