Peter Fritsch

PETER V. FRITSCH has practiced the art of scherenschnitte (scissor's cutting) and fractur (calligraphic drawing and lettering) for more than 40 years. A seventh generation Pennsylvania Dutchman living on his ancestral far, Fritsch fluently speaks and writes in the dialect. He retired after having taught art in the public school system and Pennsylvania-German history and culture at the college level.
