Hello, my name is Reb(ecca), I live in Somerset and alongside my Calligraphy, I am a support worker with people who have Autism and other disabilities. I have been in this field since 1989.
I live with my partner in our 250 year old cottage along with our 2 cats with chickens at the bottom of the garden (who occaisionally pop in to say “hello” to me in my studio in the garden!)
I have now expanded my calligraphy work as I enjoy it so much. I have created lots of commissions and am able to provide testaments.
As well as wedding work, I have created ceremonial scrolls, family trees, certificates and have taken commissions ranging from religious statements, commercial work, “Thank you” letters, congratulations scrolls, right through to personalised “Harry Potter” pieces personalised Christmas and birthday cards……. the ideas are endless, anything is possible!
The challenge of new commissions is satisfying, as each piece is personal to each customer. I like to get to know my customers, as this makes the finished pieces more intimate and special.
I have recently (2019), completed my diploma in Calligraphy, with receiving 100% on each module. This gave me the final grade of “outstanding”.
I am going to be restarting my teaching in Somerset in 2020, so if anybody local is interested, then please contact me!
Also in 2020, I will be working alongside the High Sherrifs office producing certificates, which is a very humbling commission!
I have been self taught since a child, I don’t remember not having ever done any calligraphy in one form or another.
The most regular part of my business comes from wedding invitations and table name cards. I have also created several family trees and house names plaques.
As well as the calligraphy, I am able to decorate your calligraphy to your specification with illustration…. again samples can be requested.
