How long will it take to receive my designs?
Tattoo and logo designs generally take 2 – 3 weeks to complete. Please schedule 6 to 8 weeks for me to complete and ship a marriage certificate.
I receive commission requests from all over the world and my work load can be quite high. I encourage you not to contact me at the last minute!
What forms of payment do you accept?
I invoice using the secure online PayPal system. I accept credit cards and direct account payments via PayPal. In addition I accept money orders, international money orders, and personal or business checks drawn off of any US-based bank.
How long have you been a professional calligrapher?
I first learned Persian calligraphy in elementary school and calligraphy in English in high school. In 1978 I began work as a professional calligrapher, creating 3 to 4 completed calligraphed posters per week. At that time I learned Greek and Hebrew and added that to my repertoire. In the ensuing years I studied Chinese calligraphy with several teachers. By 1982, I had created calligraphic work for magazine covers, book publications, and thousands of certificates, posters, invitations, honorary degrees, and so on. I pick up my pen every single day and can honestly say that I have never grown tired of the lines, shapes, forms and textures of the calligraphic art form.
