What calligraphy means to me

Kandinsky said: “Letters act as practical and useful signs, but also as pure form and inner melody”.

Already in my youth I have been fascinated by letters. My mother had nice handwriting, so I tried to write the same way. I have also been interested in art all those years and have always liked painting and drawing. In school I was always one of the best in this subject and also did my final tests in it.

Therefore I wanted professional training in a creative branch. For me this was textile design. At the end of my apprenticeship I won a prize for very good results in my final tests.

This gave me the possibility to take part in a workshop with calligrapher Helmut Hirmer.

Now I had found my favourite way of expressing myself. Calligraphy. I was advanced by Helmut Hirmer in my work and he even gave me the advice to start my own business.

Some years later, after a graphic design training, I started a company together with my husband Volker in the Atelier Wunderlich. I now do wall calligraphies, certificates, cards a.s.o., offer workshops in calligraphy and work as a graphic designer. After two years I became a member of the Schreibwerstatt Klingspor in Offenbach. There I met other calligraphers which was a great experience for me and helped me in my work. Since that time I take part in the Sommerschule and in other workshops.
