Calligraphy, lettering & illumination for me are true pleasures in life, not solely the act of doing it, but also seeking out work others have created and to learn from and be inspired by what I find.
In a world awash with typography and computer generated fonts, there is something special about elegant handwritten scripts and expressive lettering, about how they infuse individuality, character and beauty into the written word and enhance the personal value of any item, gift or presentation.
If you have a project in mind and would like to discuss commissioning work, please contact me.
looking forward to...
