  • Ah, a botanically soothing artwork -- the last piece before I slow down a little in July to welcome our new babe. For this, I combined modern calligraphy in deep green hues with my take on a botanical wreath, featuring a little bit o'  shimmer, inspired by the oh so talented Lindsey @thepostmansknock and Christina @littlesapphire1. Will post the full piece too. .....#moderncalligraphy #botanicalwreath #watercolour #watercolor #watercolourwreaths  #decorativeborders #illustratedborders #finetec #calligraphy #letteredwithlove #oliveandreid

  • Not long to go, my little ones ❤. We're soon to welcome a new addition to our family! I'll be taking a little time out to settle into the new routine but still welcome all enquiries for calligraphy. Just expect a slightly slower response time in July. Xx

Kate Watson, Calligrapher

The art of words

I love using traditional and modern calligraphy, hand lettering and a dash of illustration to create personalised mementos. It’s a joy to work with a client’s brief, each so unique, to develop a creative concept that encapsulates something meaningful to them.

Mindful, methodical and precise, calligraphy is perfect antidote to the hurried and sometimes harried life swirling around us. A challenging and rewarding art, I love taking the time to focus and create stunning calligraphy to share.  

I’m a Croydon-based calligraphy and lettering artist and would love to bring the art of words to your brief from my South East London studio.

I am on the committee of the South London Lettering Association, and have worked with corporate clients including CartierAstley Clarke, and Solicitors Journal.
