Fashion Show Luncheon with Chico’s of Sonoma

We are very fortunate to have a very special speaker - Rick Paulus, a calligrapher and teacher for over forty years who apprenticed for several years at the legendary Tolley Studios in Washington, D.C. before becoming the engrosser for the US State Department. In 1998, Rick was appointed chief calligrapher of the White House and served eight years under the Clinton and Bush administrations.

Today Rick continues his quest for the perfectly formed letter in his studio in the coastal hills of Sonoma County. It is here, on the edge of the continent, that he expresses his passion for the beauty and the strength of nature through the expressive use of letterforms. Rick’s current work focuses on the writings of environmentalists, poets and others who have written so eloquently of the sea. His appreciation of their words and his admiration of nature are thoughtfully expressed through his fluent use of many calligraphic hands and accompanying illustrations, paintings and textures.

Rick has also hiked the 2,600 mile Pacific Crest Trail, bicycled thousands of miles through France and kayaked 1,000 miles from Cape Cod to Canada.

Invite your friends for a fun fashion show & lunch!
