Exploring Global Manuscripts
Thanks to two grants from the Southern New England Apprenticeship Program, I have been privileged to study manuscripts from around the world with Lavell Thompson, Merri Klar, Amelia Kearney, Maria Adams, Aisha Edwards, Jennifer Thorpe, Sue Lavoie and Asa Ettienne-Modeste. I look forward to continuing this research and developing my illumination skills by learning more about manuscripts from Africa, the Middle East, Tibet, Central America and China.
In the Winter of 2024, I will be offering a 6-week class, Building Illumination Skills: African inspirations.
The Southern New England Apprenticeship Program is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and supported by Connecticut Humanities, the Connecticut Historical Society, the Connecticut Office of the Arts (DECD), and the Mass Cultural Council.
Engraving services are available for brand activations, retail events, on-site calligraphy or engraving and weddings throughout the Northeast and beyond. Debby has extensive teaching and public speaking experience and is looking forward to representing your product or personalizing a gift and making it unique!
In 2002, Debby started teaching calligraphy at the West Hartford Art League and hasn’t stopped teaching since. Her passion for keeping this beautiful art form alive fuels her efforts to develop teaching methods that make this challenging art form accessible to more people, both youth and adult.
