About

Custom initial letters, original and printed calligraphy and cards

I am a freelance Heraldic Artist and Calligrapher and spend most of my time writing and painting legal heraldic documents for the Court of the Lord Lyon in Edinburgh, but I also paint custom initial letters with favorite flowers, fruits, or heraldic motifs eg dragons in any color. Letters can be gilded in 24c gold leaf or in Palladium leaf for silver I am happy to discuss items with anyone who is unsure of what to ask for.

Initials can be single ones or doubles for Wedding or Anniversary gifts, or more, and all are handpainted by me. Do have a look through my shop and see if there is a design you might like with another letter or if you need to see which colors can go well together.

I also handwrite Scottish Calligraphy works both in originals and prints, and have a variety of printed animal cards with Dragons in four colors, Unicorn, Griffin, Dolphin and birds too, including Owl, Eagles, Stork, Swan .

I work from home in Edinburgh, Scotland, and would like to say Thank you for reading about me and having a look in my shop.

Please do get in touch if you would like to discuss a Calligraphy project or if you are unsure what to ask for custom initials..

Hello and welcome to my shop.

Please feel free to browse and find your favourite design amongst my handpainted illuminated letters - note that I can paint any letter in any color or gild them using 24c Gold leaf or Palladium leaf for silver. I paint all of the initial letters myself and am happy to discuss ideas with you if you are unsure of what might look best, so do contact me about any questions you have before ordering.

Be assured that I use only the best quality of watercolor or gouache paints, watercolor paper and that each initial is sold within an ivory mount. Ordered items will then be securely packed within layers of board before being sent to ensure that they are protected and delivered to you in perfect condition.

I welcome Custom Orders so please contact me if you have any special preferences or if the item you wish is not already shown as a listing.
