Event Details

Heraldic art began in the early Middle Ages, but it hasn’t stayed there. It is thriving in Ottawa, where there is an office of the Governor General called the Heraldic Authority which grants Coats of Arms, Flags, Badges, and medals to individuals and organizations from Governors General, to canola farmers, to cities, and more. The Authority and other government departments hire artists to create documents through painting and calligraphy. Judy worked for almost 20 years painting, decorating, illuminating, gilding, and calligraphing such documents on fine paper and calfskin.  She still teaches the skills involved; skills which will serve a modern artist well. Many interesting anecdotes have come out of those 20 years as a government scribe. Contact: 1.866.353.6464 ext. 3  /  705.457.1680
