About me

About me:

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.

Modern family trees with calligraphy – in time for Christmas!

Stocks are now in for Christmas orders of my modern calligraphy family tree, designed in collaboration with Welsh artist Amy Swann.

Every family tree is written by hand and sent rolled and tied as a scroll with a ribbon around it.

The size is A3, and the family tree is unframed.

This makes the loveliest gift for Christmas: it’s unusual and with a wonderful family focus, perfect for this time of year.

Order your calligraphy family tree right here on the Scribblers website at
