I am thrilled that a piece of calligraphy I donated to the “Out of the Silence” exhibit has been published in Bound & Lettered, a quarterly journal devoted to artists’ books, bookbinding, papercraft and calligraphy.
“Out of the Silence” is a calligraphic exhibit intended to promote a dialogue about the issues of bullying and the increasing rate of teen suicide as a result. It was developed by Sally Penley, an artist, calligrapher and friend from Olympia, WA.
Last year, I and thirty-eight other calligraphers from across North America donated pieces to the exhibit. We combined impactful messages and quotes with our calligraphy to create 58 pieces of powerful art. Some of the messages address the issues, and others promote love, self-worth and hope—hope for a better future that celebrates diversity and equal rights for everyone, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity.

Hugs to all,
