Calligraphy in Portland, Ore.

David Grimes is a calligrapher and engrosser from Portland, Oregon, whose work is based heavily on the work of early 20th century writing masters from the Zanerian College of Penmanship in Columbus Ohio. He teaches workshops throughout the United States in the fall and winter on the foundational principals of Engrosser’s Script writing, and is currently available for comission on projects within the Portland Metropolitan area.
