Artist & Calligrapher | Coppertop Cards
Support Susi through her Etsy shop CoppertopCards
Susi’s interest in calligraphy and design started during her A’level Art course, but then quickly went on hold for the next 30 years, while she studied and worked as a GP. A change in direction has brought her full circle back to being able to write legibly once again, using modern calligraphy in much of her work! She’s a redhead (hence ‘Coppertop’!) who now creates beautiful cards, prints, and wedding stationary by hand, in her ‘studio’ room at home in Stocklinch, Somerset.
Coppertop Cards is a small independent business specialising in producing beautiful bespoke hand designed and embellished cards and stationary. Her work often uses modern calligraphy, and then each individual card is brought to life with coloured, textured dots and designs to make them pretty and original.
You can find examples of her work on Facebook and instagram @coppertopcards
Susi loves being with people and looks forward to sharing some of the basics of modern calligraphy in a relaxed and enjoyable way.
