Description Calligraphic rendition of Ella Wheeler Wilcox quote, 'One ship sails East, Another West, by the self-same wind that blows. Tis the set of the sails and not the gales that tells the way we go.'
J Reuben Aiton, Greenville, SC Member Since September 2008 Artist Statement I'm a chemical engineer by trade, but I've always had a flare for the artistic. I grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and graduated from Lousiana State University in 1997. After working for ExxonMobil and General Electric for 10 years in Baton Rouge, Houston and Greenville, SC, I decided to take up a completely new skilll. I've always enjoyed cursive writing and have also admired the beauty of medieval biblical texts. I began teaching myself various forms of calligraphy similar to these works. The skill came naturally and has provided many hours of enjoyment. I've recently decided to share my creations with others.
