Our wonderful friend, and calligrapher, Brenda Broadbent, passed away on November 18, 2017.
As the original creator and owner of Paper and Ink Books, she was known to thousands of conference attendees, including specialized calligraphy gathering like IAMPETH. Both teachers and students depended upon her expertise as a supplier, encourager and friend. Paper and Ink Arts (as it is called now) is very active and as a business, it continues to serve a worldwide lettering arts customer base. Brenda has been fondly remembered by her sense of humor and kindness. She will be greatly missed.
