Martha gave very thorough and clear explanation on every stroke, she gave almost real time feedback which is very helpful when I needed to ask something during my practice time, she adjusted her way for teaching to make me better understand, and she is very generous of her time and knowledge.
Small class size so we could ask all the questions we wanted and get detailed explanation and influence what was covered in class. Loved the concept of this Spencerian class as well, very suited to what I wanted to learn and my current skill level. Appreciate Martha's expertise as well as encouraging teaching style!
Martha started her art, lettering & calligraphy journey in oil painting in 1990's, continued her passion in design in fashion industry, and western calligraphy since 2013 with cursive writing on her wedding day In New Zealand, she was then moving on to modern calligraphy & part time learning on traditional scripts in the USA. Later in the mid-late of 2014, early of 2015, started teaching modern calligraphy online due to nomad life, and travels constantly, so she also started fully focus study in Traditional Spencerian Script and Engrosser's Script / Copperplate / Roundhand.
