MY BUZZ

The response from the #SBS win has been tremendous and is a great boost to my confidence. I'm still in the start up phase of the business, so the win comes at just the right time to propel me into 2015!

MY BIO

Gabrielle Izen is a designer creating stationery, decorative artwork and gifts from her studio in Kent. She studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Chelsea School of Art and is very fortunate to have been taught by Quentin Blake. She produces the work by hand using traditional methods of illustration, lettering and calligraphy; dip pens, inks, Japanese reed pens, brushes, water colour paints and papers. Typography and decorative lettering are used in some of the designs. The theme of love plays a big part in Gabrielle's work and many of the designs feature messages of love, uplifting and humorous sayings and famous quotes. Gabrielle is keen to support local industry so the print and production is done in Kent. The envelopes are made in a traditional Yorkshire mill and match the cards. These are 150gsm and give a feel of luxury. The mounts are cut in the traditional way at a local framers. Time is taken to create the artwork, so it's s a real labour of love. Gabrielle endeavours to produce original and beautiful artwork that people love to give and receive. She's proud to say her work is made in England!
