a little bit about me.

a little bit about me.

Five years ago I tried my hand at calligraphy and I fell in love. I discovered pure joy in the written word. I loved the simplicity and magic of putting pen to paper and delighted in making words artfully dance across the page...

"Marie-Claire turns words into art.

I recently wrote a poem after the loss of a loved one and although I was hesitant to share something so close to my heart, I’m so glad I did. Marie-Claire was incredibly understanding and treated my piece with such care and sensitivity, she helped me figure out what I wanted. The finished product absolutely blew me away, it was perfect. I cannot gush about her enough."

Marie-Claire offers an exceptional level of customer service, very professional and goes above and beyond. The product is beyond amazing, top quality, highly bespoke and exceptionally stylish in design. My invitation suite honestly took my breath away. I could not have asked for a nicer wedding supplier this year.

Marie Claire was professional, helpful and a pleasure to work with. Marie-Claire created the perfect samples, first attempt, no changes required. The full process was flawless making it an enjoyable and easy experience! I have continued to order presents and other pieces from her. Each time, I have been blown away by her incredible talent and her ability to capture what was in my mind’s eye. I highly recommend Marie-Claire to anyone hoping to create a unique, thoughtful and personalised gift or even something for yourself!

I was completely charmed by the elegance of Marie-Claire's work and immediately knew I wanted to have a piece made for my home. I contacted her to have a very personal piece done for my husband as an anniversary gift. She listened carefully and paid great attention to detail in what I asked for. Her service was brilliant - fast and effective. Not only is she a fantastic artist but a great business person too... and so lovely to deal with. I can’t wait to have another piece commissioned soon as it is truly a very personal and special piece to own.
