I love these so much! The calligraphy is gorgeous and the quality of the paper is beautiful. I also love that each card contains a small insert with the meaning of the word explained. I have used these for Mother's Day, and for special occasions. Thanks for these beautiful cards!

I am originally a graphic designer, but a winding creative career finally brought me to Abstract Art as a means of evoking universal truths. I do this through colours, papercutting, and patterns derived from Kufic, an extinct Arabic calligraphic script which I have been reviving.

This shop features the crafty and smaller-scale aspect of my work: art prints, handmade books, jewelry, cards... You'll find the original fine art pieces on I take commissions for original pieces and can work on budget. Sign up to my monthly newsletter to keep informed about my latest pieces, events and workshops :

My eco-ethical pledge: My personal life reflects my deep concern for planetary and human well-being, and I am shifting my artistic practice to be equally gentle on the planet. Among other things, I'm phasing plastic out of all my packaging, and reducing its use in my art materials. Bear this in mind if your order arrives in a reused mailer!
