How did you get into calligraphy?
I first started learning calligraphy in 2018, it started out as a hobby to help design some wedding invites and write out envelopes for one of my best friends. I created my own Instagram account to post my creations, and before I knew it I started getting requests for wedding calligraphy, live events, brand collaborations and even Cannes Film Festival!
What do you love most about calligraphy?
What amazes me about calligraphy is that you don’t need any direction to get started. You can can simply start by writing your name, write out some lyrics, quotes etc. The thing I probably love about it the most is how much concentration it requires, when your brain is engaged, the hand eye coordination required, the world stops still. You can’t think of anything else and that is what they call mindfulness!
Tell us about your role on the frontline?
I work as a Senior House Officer (SHO) in intensive care and anaesthetics. My day to day job involves assisting with theatre based anaesthesia, but with the current situation we are seeing and influx of patients with coronavirus, I have been redeployed to help manage patients in intensive care.
