Moki is trained as an architect (graduate of Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art) and is a long-time member of the Society of Scribes and the International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting [IAMPETH]. Moki Kokoris has been a freelance calligrapher, illustrator and graphic designer for over 40 years. Though she devotes much of her time to environmental advocacy and stewardship through her 90-north outreach education programs, she is equally passionate about visual arts, particularly calligraphy in its classical forms. In many of her high-end commissions, she uses authentic animal skin parchment, and quills* or reeds she collects and cuts herself. Moki is a Ridgefield, CT resident (and a confirmed chocoholic). *No swans are ever harmed in the making of her calligraphy quills.
