Jake Weidmann is a professional artist and certified master penman who lives and works in Denver, Colorado.
Weidmann received his master penman certificate through The International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting (IAMPETH) in July of 2011. Weidmann works across numerous mediums in art and calligraphy but is most well-known for his use of flourishing and hand lettering in the context of his art pieces.
Jake Weidmann is also the youngest master penman in the United States by three generations. His art is a dying one.
In this fascinating look into the art behind being a master penman, we learn sometimes it’s more about the passion for a craft than the money or accolades.
Weidmann’s work shows an attention to minute detail that only comes through years and years of practice. His finished pieces — which fuse calligraphy and fine art — remind us that handwriting can be beautiful.
