About Gabrielle Solly Illustration

I’m an illustrator and modern calligrapher creating ranges of greeting cards, stationery, art and commissioned pieces. I produce all the work by hand using dip pens, inks, watercolour paints and crayons. I use gold and silver metallic paints and pure gold leaf in the hand finished prints and some original art.

I’m inspired by the natural world and the romantic, organic designs of decorative arts. I was very fortunate to have been taught illustration by Quentin Blake, who encouraged my light, flowing style.

The printers and fulfilment service are based in Kent with carbon neutral print presses in a solar-powered warehouse. The paper is from an FSC-certified supplier.

The studio waste is recycled, composted or incinerated at a power station which generates electricity for the local area.

Proudly made in England.
