  • And now for something completely different...holiday in Devon! We spent the day in Totnes and watched the longboat races on the River Dart. Tried to keep my toddler entertained with these because my 8-month pregnant body cannot keep up with her river-directed whims and whatnot.

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.
