Susan Dougal of New Bern is one of the few expert calligraphers in the country. In her early years, she learned a dozen different styles of calligraphy with Sheila Waters, the only American member of the London Society of Scribes and Illuminators. Dougal's work can command as much as $750 for a single certificate. While she lived in Washington, D.C., she did work for the government and for the White House. Since coming to North Carolina, however, she is finding minimal demand for her art.
