This commission is my client’s daily reading and he wanted to have this wall hanging at his place of work for all to read. When I was commissioned to do this piece I was told that it dated back to the 1600′s and was found in a church in a fire (this is a common myth I’ve since found out – it was actually written by Max Ehrmann around 1920).
The Voyage – I think almost every Irish person knows this song by Christy Moore. My client told me that this song was playing when he met his wife. The perfect anniversary gift. Unique and special to them.
Initially this bride came to me looking for me to design something for her to re-print, she didn’t really have anything particular in mind just that she wanted something unique to her wedding that she could use for her wedding service cover. I used the couple initials to design a simple but ornate monogram and used on her Service Booklet. Once she saw the original design. She decided to have all the covers were individually inscribe.
This commission commemorative piece wss for a long serving head master. The teachers & colleagues wanted to use photograph’s as part of this memorial. I use cotton paper for most of my commissions so transferring the photographs wasn’t too difficult. I designed a ornate capital letter S for the word Scoil or School. A very simple piece but at the same time quiet complicated. The original was given to his wife and a framed copy for the school.
Here is a link to my on-line Calligraphy Portfolio where there are some more examples of my work.
