Since 2009, I've been flourishing away for clients far and wide, creating custom lettered & calligraphed invitations, envelopes, signage and so much more.

In 2016, I took my love of calligraphy to a new level, launching Calligraphy Supplies Australia, an online boutique specialising in calligraphy specific nibs, pens, inks and accessories.
