Hi. My name is Jane Lappage. Living in Leicestershire, I have been studying to be a calligrapher since 2005...
Since then, I've been producing various artworks and calligraphic pieces, among which was a yearly calendar that was created during my evening classes that I gave out to friends and family at Christmas time as stocking fillers. In Christmas 2010, however, our class decided to do a new project which meant I would need another handmade gift that everyone would love and enjoy as much as the calendar. I had an idea - as I had already drawn a cat created from words and phrases - why not use this design for packs of notelets?
So, many cards, envelopes and cellophane bags later, I decided to try some new designs that would be great for many other people to enjoy as well.
My husband, Nick, and I created Calligraphy Arts and now produce and sell greeting cards and various artworks which have designs encompassing Cats, Dogs, Doves, Paws and Hearts, Eternal Celtic Love Knots, while the more rock inspired amongst you may be interested in Guitars, Choppers, Motorcycles, Ace of Spades and Skull & Crossbones. We even have campervans and cars!
For those of you who may be getting engaged or married, then you really should have a look at our calligraphy wedding section, which has many ideas and products to help you make your special day a truly magical one. Don't forget our feather and pewter calligraphy dip pens will make your register signing photos look wonderful.
Being in the rural heart of England, I have now given my calligraphy services to many people and companies throughout the UK. From Leicester to Loughborough, Nottingham to Northampton, East Midlands or West Midlands, North or South, local or not so local... in fact Internationally too. You can be sure I aim to provide you with one of the best calligraphic experiences that I can.
Here's a small list of works I have produced so far.
- Wedding Invitations
- Place cards
- Gift tags
- Unique Greeting Cards
- Bespoke Artwork
- Leaving or Retirement Presentations
- Long Service Awards
- Visitor Book for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee visit to Leicester
(I simply can't leave that one out)
I have also been working with the Brownies and Girl Guides organisations serving as an introduction to calligraphy as well as being invited to school classes and Women's Institute meetings.
There's also a gallery of photographs that show, in greater detail, the type of great quality calligraphy work that you can expect.
So, if you want something truly special, then contact me.
My aim is to be your National Calligrapher of Choice in the UK.
