    Debra Ferreboeuf and the Art of Calligraphy

    Debra Ferreboeuf is The Quill’s dedicated calligrapher. She has made a career from her art, crafting pieces for exhibitions and fulfilling custom lettering for Quill clients since 2000. 

    Her forty years of training shine through whenever her calligraphy nib touches paper, and she’s always looking to improve her craft. She began her calligraphy journey in a community classroom, and she continues to attend seminars, classes, and workshops to this day. Like most calligraphers, Ferreboeuf developed mastery over a historical alphabet through her training, allowing her to efficiently create elegant – but consistent – handwritten script.

  • Beau Jackson's Tide Pool Studies

    Beau Jackson's Tide Pool Studies

    During these meditative trips, Jackson combs through rocky shores and explores hidden alcoves. He knows these beaches well, frequently returning to specific spots to visit his favorite sea anemones and abalones. He takes pictures along the way, which he later uses as references for his work.

    “I like to highlight those tide pool creatures in the cards that I make for The Quill,” Jackson said. “It’s a way to take a little piece of the tide pool home with me and share it with other people.”
