My name is Elle, welcome to my modern calligraphy studio and creative space! I live in the beautiful rural county of Wiltshire with my Husband, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Rolo and thoroughbred ex racehorse, Pacha. I have loved paper and stationery for as long as I can remember and I am definitely a paper diary person! In my spare time, some of my favourite things include long dog walks, eating lots of cheese and baking cupcakes. 

I first picked up a fountain calligraphy pen from a wonderful stationery shop in Melbourne, Australia whilst travelling and have been obsessed ever since. After doodling on every scrap of paper I could find whilst travelling, on my return to the UK I discovered pointed nib calligraphy and fell in love and have spent the last few years perfecting the art of Modern Calligraphy. 

I have been a Planning and Conservation Officer for the last 5 years and have a secret love for historic and period properties! The built environment provides us with so much detail and inspiration that is continually evolving. I love combining my passion for buildings and calligraphy, by offering bespoke and personalised building illustrations, into luxury prints, a super special gift! I am open to commissions throughout the year and would love to turn your special places into illustrations. 


After designing my wedding and on the day stationery in 2022 with my super talented sister in law Emma, I wanted to explore my passion more and help others bring their stationery dreams to life. Whether you are looking a understated or elaborate place setting, luxury gift or bespoke hand calligraphed print, I cant wait to work with you to help bring your personalised stationery dreams to life. 


I specialise in creating distinctive, one-of-a-kind calligraphy pieces that will make any occasion truly special. I would love to hear from you, please contact me via the request a quote form or via email, for more information, any questions or collaboration ideas. 

Love Elle
