Ms. Kamecke studied with a Calligraphy master in Japan, then attended The California Institute of The Arts. She has exhibited her work in California, New York and Maine.

In Maine, Kamecke gives workshops for all ages. Recently, she was with first grade students at Great Salt Bay Community School in Damariscotta. She says, 'The way I teach involves the whole body. The children become quiet and concentrate very hard, and their teachers are surprised. And, sometimes they ask questions that surprise me!" The class at Penobscot School is suitable for all levels of experience and for ages middle school and older.
