Discover the Wonderful New World of Gabrielle Izen
In May this year Gabrielle Izen re-launched her design business with an aim to create beautiful and original greetings cards, notecards, stationery and prints that people would love to send and receive. Today’s post is a selection of my favourites from her best-selling ranges.
Gabrielle is an experienced Designer having studied at the Chelsea School of Art. Taught by renowned Illustrator Quentin Blake, Gabrielle was encouraged to work with illustration and calligraphy; both of which play an important role in today’s featured greeting cards. For each card or print Gabrielle creates all of the artwork by hand using traditional methods. Water colour paint and papers, coloured crayon, pencil, dip pen and inks are all combined to create the soft, delicate style to be found across the collection. Keen to support British craftsmanship, Gabrielle is proud to declare that all of her products are ‘Made in England’, with much of production and fulfilment of her greeting card and gift products kept within her local economy.
Gabrielle Izen greeting cards are stocked in a number of historic houses, garden attractions and boutiques across the UK. To see the full collection and find out more please visit the Gabrielle Izen website.
