Luisa Calligraphy      Images


Luisa Urgias is a calligrapher. She lives in Monfalcone. She began to study calligraphy and history of writing in 2000. Since then she has constantly worked by attending several calligraphy and art workshops, both in Italy and abroad, with internationally-known artists and calligraphers.

Between 2002 and 2005 she worked with the CLAS (Calligraphy and Lettering Art Society) Honoured Fellow Gaynor Goffe. In August 2003 and in August 2005 she obtained two CLAS National Diplomas in Calligraphy, the Foundational and the Intermediate one (with merit).

Luisa attended workshops with internationally known artists and calligraphers as Brody Neuenschwander, Denis Brown, Yves Leterme, Gottfried Pott, Ewan Clayton, Massimo Polello, Monica Dengo, Birgit Nass and others.

She teaches calligraphy and she is interested in Oriental Calligraphy too; she's going on to enhance and extend her capabilities and knowledge.
