Owen Williams

I am a calligrapher and educator. Born in England, I grew up in Whitehorse, Yukon. An early interest in calligraphy and lettering led me to train in England: first as a stone letter carver in 1992 with the respected craftsman David Kindersley at his workshop in Cambridge, then from 1993 as a calligrapher at the Roehampton Institute in London where I graduated in 1998 with a BA (Hons) in Calligraphy. In 2000 I studied typeface design at Reading University’s Department of Typography & Visual Communication. From 2001 to 2003 I lived in Kyoto, Japan, where I studied contemporary expressions of Japanese calligraphy and traditional woodblock print techniques. Returning to Canada in 2004, I opened a studio in Whitehorse, Yukon, where I have developed my interest in calligraphy as a contemporary practice.
