The Calligrapher, Ms. Betty Gilpin

If you are in the market for a calligrapher/script style writer look no further than this great lady. Betty is 81 and has been teaching and practicing this dying art form for 40+ years. Betty bought an art store in Nashville in the 70's when the Carter administration started offering business loans to women. Besides art supplies she also offered classes in calligraphy. My cousin in TN hired her to do her wedding announcements, envelopes. etc. Consequently, I had Betty do some script work for Billykirk. A few of the examples and her contact info are below. She is now working on some monograms for us to use on some linen stationary. I will post those images when I receive them. She is a sweet lady and a pleasure to work with.
