claremccrory27's Shop Announcement

Handpainted illuminated initial letters and original calligraphy pieces. Choose from a variety of manuscript initials painted in color or gilded with real gold or silver leaf, handpainted with flowers or fruits eg. thistles, bluebells, heraldic roses, grapevines, white clover, snowdrops, strawberries, orange blossom, apples, raspberries or with heraldic animals - for example, a dragon or a lion, a phoenix; griffin or unicorn. Mythical animals are found often in heraldry and in illuminated manuscripts from all over the world. As a trained calligrapher and heraldic artist, I also produce Celtic letters inside knotwork panels or Roman capitals in any colors or in gold leaf or silver.

I am a trained Calligrapher and Heraldic Artist, graduating from Anthony and Margaret Wood's renowned Course in Calligraphy, Heraldry and Manuscript Illumination at Reigate School of Art and Design, Surrey, in the mid-1980s; and I have recently been accepted as a Craft Member of the Society of Heraldic Arts.

For examples of my Heraldic artwork see - - which is the Artists' page link from the website for the Court of the Lord Lyon, HM New Register House, Edinburgh EH1 3YT.
