Christen Allocco Turney was hooked on calligraphy from the moment the tines of her pointed pen nib split, and has never looked back. Christen is an amateur baker, winter enthusiast and Jersey girl at heart. She lives in southeastern Virginia with her husband and their sweet pit bull, Niko. She is a member of the Washington Calligraphers Guild and the International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting. Christen is the co-host of The Calligraphy Podcast and teaches students all across the globe. She works in both broad edge and pointed pen calligraphy, but has a particular love for Copperplate and its variations.
