Struggling for a unique gift for Mom? Why not make your own card? Denise Middleton talks with Tamer Ghoneim, a local artist who has been creating for about 30 years.
Tamer says that he has always been fascinated by calligraphy.
“My dad is in handwriting and pens and my mom is super creative, they’ve been very good helping me grow in the skill,” he explains.
A handwritten note is something that is personal, your own personality comes through the note and lettering.
Tamer Ghoneim explains some of his work that is on display and then takes Denise through some simple craftmanship demonstration and then offers these additional tips:
- Use the tip of the pen for different line style
- Do some color gradients
