Member of La Société des Calligraphes since 1993, Luc Saucier has been plying his trade as a freelance scribe for the last thirty years. A self-taught calligrapher, he attended workshops given by Donald Jackson, Sheila and Julian Waters, John Stevens and Thomas Ingmire. His ongoing interest in History led him to specialize in classical hands and the art of flourishing.
He started his trade in Montreal as poster designer for the Chapelle historique du Bon-Pasteur and also took part in projects commissioned by La Tranchefile, a bookbinding shop. As his trade expanded, he was also called to carry out calligraphed items for TV commercials and movies.
A sought-after scribe for protocolary documents, he penned commissions for the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the Ministère de la Culture du Québec, the Diocese of Montreal and the Federal government. An associate calligrapher to the Herald of Arms of Canada since 2005, he also performs calligraphy duties at the City Halls of Montreal and Beloeil, QC.
He taught calligraphy at the Visual Art Center from 1996 to 2004 and now gives workshops at his Mont-Saint-Hilaire studio and in the Montreal area.
