Based in South-West London but originally from Estonia, Kristi trained for 6 years with Europe’s leading calligraphy masters, and is now an expert in both modern and traditional calligraphy and so has a variety of different scripts and styles.
She loves taking elements from traditional styles such as copperplate but combining them with modern techniques such as watercolour washes. Her colour paring is fantastic and she loves blending colours with metallics.
She is the London Tutor for The Modern Calligraphy Co, and teaches pointed nib and brushpen calligraphy for beginners and intermediates. She has also attended many high-profile events, personalising gifts or creating unusual and artistic stationery for high-end clients.
“I love the calming, meditative quality of calligraphy and the freedom it gives me. Just watching the ink flow, makes me happy. I also love gardening and taking my dogs for long walks."
