About Me:

calligrapher and artist Margaret DavisI have been pursuing my love and study of calligraphy since high school, when I first became enamored of the beauty of Medieval illuminated manuscripts. I was a self-taught calligrapher for many years and learned much from the books of Margaret Shepherd. After college and post-grad work, which included courses in art, composition, graphic design, and illustration, I studied calligraphy seriously with John Prestianni, an elected member of the Society of Scribes and Illuminators, and most notably with Carla Tenret of Albany, CA. I have been creating calligraphic works of art professionally in the San Francisco Bay Area for about 10 years.
