Bill Kemp

Bill is a lettering artist, but has been told by his mentor, the late Mr. William Lilly, that he is an Engrosser. Bill has been practicing his craft for over 40 years. Pointed pen is his true love, but also does board edge lettering, too. Engrosser’s Script is a script that has really been his main focus for many years. Bill has studied with such instructors as the late Mr. Dick Jackson, the late Ms. Gwen Weaver, Master Penman Mr. Mike Kesceg and his mentor Senior Master Penman Mr. William Lilly over the course of his career. The main path of his studies has been with Mr. Lilly for the past 18 years and has completed his Certificate of Merit, in Engrosser’s Script, with Mr. Lilly in November 2015. He has taught around the United States over the years, like everyone else in the world in person teaching came to a halt in 2020. Zoom teaching and learning has now taken the calligraphic world which Bill has also embraced to teach and learn by. He also runs his small calligraphy business in Albuquerque, New Mexico where his clients keep him busy and where he gets paid to practice.
