I specialise in modern calligraphy, contemporary word art and weddings. I live by the beach, on the edge of the Lake District – my home here inspires my art and calligraphy. Sometimes my hair is blue; most days my hands are inky and my shoes are full of sand. I write almost every day, and I love my job!
I have been working full time as a calligrapher since 2005. I’ve had my lettering featured in Kirstie Allsopp’s books and TV programmes, and taught for Kirstie at her Handmade Fair in Hampton Court. Previous clients have included the BBC, Steve Gerrard’s wedding, Louis Vuitton and luxury travel companies – but my favourites are the everyday people like me who just want something a little bit special for someone they love. I take on commissions for special poems, recipes, marriage certificates, and more. I sell worldwide from my website By Moon & Tide Calligraphy. My most popular items are my calligraphy starter kit and modern family tree print.
