Professional calligrapher Bristol
Paula Cronin, Artist and calligrapher, Bristol
I was fortunate to grow up during a time when some new and exciting greetings card designers emerged to rule the social stationery world and from an early age I found inspiration in their work, copying the designs in crayon and pencil.
I began to practice calligraphy at around 11 years old having received a pen-set for Christmas and have been enthralled ever since!
Having written birthday cards and invitations as “your fancy writing is better than mine!” often being the case, for friends and family over the years, I now provide a bespoke service and it gives me great pleasure in bringing joy to a special occasion or simply to make someone’s day one to remember and a beautifully written card or gift with a personal touch can go a long way.
Confirming my fascination with Art, Design, typography and handwriting, I enjoyed studying Art & Design throughout school and college and ultimately gained an HND in Wildlife Illustration.
