lover of all things paper & ink • letter writer • vintage cursive script • modern calligraphy • brush lettering
I take commissions for handwritten artworks using my own style of vintage cursive script, modern calligraphy & brush lettering. All my work is individually handmade to order in my home studio where I use the loveliest of papers, inks, ribbons and wax seals to create modern keepsakes influenced by my love of all things handwritten.
I am passionate about colour in all its shades and tones from dark & moody to soft, dreamy pastels. Colour pairings inspired by art, architecture, interiors & nature are often the starting point for my designs.
The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love colour the most. John Ruskin, The Stones of Venice, 1851
I’ve always been interested in the handwritten, changing and developing my own style many times since I was given my first fountain pen as a teenager. Studying history at university and then working for the registration service in London fed my interest in historic handwritten documents and I could happily while away an hour or two looking at vintage paper ephemera and swooning over the faded handwriting.
In 2016 my husband gave me the gift of a modern calligraphy set from Quill London and I immediately began practising this addictive art form, learning to use a pointed pen dipped in ink and also a fine paint brush to create my personal style of modern calligraphy, brush lettering and vintage cursive script.
I've been creating handwritten artworks from my home studio in the eaves of our Edwardian house on the North East coast since 2018, combining my love of all things paper, ink & colour.
