About

I'm a calligrapher & lettering artist... words inspire me, and I try to capture the spirit of them in everything that I create. I often work on canvas or handmade paper & love creating texture or layers of words or colour. I'm a paper addict too & have more paper than I could ever hope to use... but hey, there are worse vices!

I have taught calligraphy in adult education & led workshops for calligraphy groups in the UK, always enjoying the sharing of inspiration with others. For a while I sold my work through my own gallery along with the work of others, but eventually sold up when I began to travel with my partner wherever he was working.

I stepped away from calligraphy for a while, but the lure of the pen & paint soon called me back, and etsy is proving to be the perfect venue for me. I have my shop, I can create, but I'm not tied to being in one…

There's something so satisfying about working with people to create a piece of art that really means something to them... something with an emotional connection, so if you have a favourite verse, song or quotation, do get in touch to discuss your ideas. You can see more of a selection of past work at my blog http://www.suziscribbles.com/

Oh, that paper addiction I mentioned at the beginning.... I've now opened
