Artist Statement

I have always had a fascination with lettering, particularly beautiful, highly embellished fonts. My Grandad was a Master Signwriter and I still have his lettering books and brushes from the 1930s and 1940s. They are a poignant link to his highly skilled craft, and to a time before technology started to take away the need for fine draughtsmanship and a steady hand. I love the idea of combining my own craft of traditional hand embroidery with beautiful fancy lettering styles to create uplifting, optimistic images that will hopefully make you smile.
