I am a Heraldic Artist and Calligrapher , based in Edinburgh. I graduated from Anthony and Margaret Wood's renowned Course in Calligraphy, Heraldry and Manuscript Illumination at the Reigate School of Art and Design, Surrey.
As well as being a Craft Member of the Society of Heraldic Arts, I have been one of the team of heraldic artists in the Court of the Lord Lyon in Edinburgh for over 25 years.
My work in the Court involves preparing, writing and painting the original Letters Patents and Matriculations of Arms granted by the Lord Lyon King of Arms, as calfskin vellum documents. The Court of the Lord Lyon is the oldest Heraldic Office in the world with the first depictions of Arms dating from 1672
As well as my heraldic work, I design and handpaint illuminated initial letters, and I am available for commissioning original bespoke artwork.
See my Contact page for details of how to commission a work.
