This will be a visual adventure as we travel along with calligrapher and teacher, Yukimi Annand, as she shares insights and examples of her focus on experimentation. Her visual communication design background has been a rich foundation for her current work. We will see starting points coming from American abstract expressionism, and the works of nature artists, along with nature photo images that Yukimi uses to inspire her own experimental calligraphy.
