About me

About me:

I’m a professional calligrapher loving working with letters all day long.  I do commissions and teach, as well as just having fun in my studio. I live on beautiful Anglesey but have customers all over the world.  Do please get in touch if you are interested in what I do.

I have been a professional calligrapher for 10 years, and carry out commission work and teach groups and individuals, both face to face and online.  My particular specialism is family trees – I have created nearly 200 different trees for customers.


Anniversary gift hit the spot!

Janet is fantastic! I asked her to create a piece to be a gift for my wife for our first anniversary and she was absolutely wonderful. She gave me several great ideas of how to present the piece, suggesting different colours and designs based around the wording of the poem I had chosen. She a was patient and responded to my communications quickly, and always made me feel in control of decisions. The finished piece is excellent, exactly what I was hoping for and my wife absolutely loved it! Thank you for everything!


Family tree feedback

Over that past few months Janet has transformed our family tree not only into a work of art, but into a really valuable summary of a very complex set of relationships stretching back well over a thousand years, crossing dynasties, faiths, social orders and continents. Janet’s artistic eye, her attention to detail, her timeliness and her extensive experience of family trees combined with calligraphy, have ensured that the end product was way beyond our expectation when we started our journey with her. She is also great fun. Thank you very much Janet.
