Copperplate Calligraphy

I currently run Copperplate calligraphy workshops in Australia. These below are my ongoing personal calligraphic exercises.

“Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans” Jacques Cousteau (Explorer and marine researcher).

“Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money” American Indian proverb.

“Until you dig a hole, you plant a tree, you water it and make it survive, you haven’t done a thing. You are just talking” Wangari Maathai (Environmentalist and Nobel Peace Prize winner).

“We’ll never know the worth of water till the well is dry” Thomas Fuller, historian.

“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man (and woman’s) needs, but not every man’s (and woman’s) greed” Mahatma Gandhi (activist and pacifist).
