My name is Vera. I am new to FPN and was hoping to meet people with similar interests.

When I was younger, I tried dipped pens and fountain pens (disposable) for writing, art and Japanese hiragana, kanji etc.

I stumbled upon fountain pens when my nibs, pens ands supplies were destroyed in a house flood. I was looking for something new to buy.

I guess I am starting over with a new perspective in fountain pens, inks and even paper. Really excited to learn about the hobby, collect new pens and materials for creating and writing.

I am also interested in travel and DIY anything. The care and formulas in the ink are most intriguing.

In regards to FPN, I am into shaded inks, permanent colour inks, large high quality paper, colour ranges... Suggestions about pens for art purposes.

A little about me: I am a 34 female, work full-time in the downtown Toronto.

Hello Vera and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa. 

To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!
