Alice Young

Victoria, Canada

Calligrapher, graphic designer

生平

As a child, Alice Young loved to draw, but was captivated when she discovered ink – liquid, black and alive. As an art student, she was drawn to illuminated manuscripts and early forms of written communication. A career in graphic design followed, but while focused on computer and typographic skills, the lure of the hand-written mark remained strong, and calligraphy became an area of interest and expertise. Now settled on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, her current work encompasses both verbal and non-verbal calligraphy. Inspiration comes from many sources including music, lyrics, poetry, prose, Asian art, historical western manuscripts and the dramatic beauty of the west coast landscape.
