My name is Fion, and I am the left-handed calligrapher behind the pen of Ink & Things. I currently live in Bristol with my husband, and two adorable bunnies named Mezza and Luna. It is my passion and love for bringing joy to others by writing their name beautifully, to scribing the love songs representing a bond and vows to last a lifetime, and being a part of someone's unique story.
[ik-ee-guy] noun. Japanese - a reason for being; the thing that gets you up in the morning.
Calligraphy holds a special place in my heart.
Shortly after graduating from University, I entered a period of my life that was very challenging, I was struggling more than I thought I could cope with. With uncertainty around every corner, I took a deep dive into the world of calligraphy, in search of some form of solitude and control amidst the chaos.
I was self-taught for the first four years, looking back, I wish I’ve signed up for courses sooner having met wonderful teachers from across the globe, not to mention the wonderful calligraphy community!
So, the journey of learning and discovery continues! The best part is having the dearest persons around, and celebrating the bond between you. For me, it is in the form of calligraphy, where the stories can be treasured for generations to come.
I am an ENFP, The Campaigner from the Myers Briggs personality test, who truly love to get to know people, especially for their passions, hopes and dreams!
I am a coffee geek (Only very mildly) and love exploring different speciality coffee shops to taste different brews (a mild coffee geek). A V60 Pour over is my all-time favourite, second to that would be a velvety flat white.
My friends come to me for makeup and skincare advice, though I can’t claim to be a beauty guru, I might as well secretly be one since I love it so much. (All the hours spent on YouTube that I’ll never get back, anyone resonates?)
