Calligraphy Styles & Past Work

Kirsten Burke is one of the leading lettering artists working in the UK today. Maybe you’ve seen her vibrant creations adorning a wall at a museum, gracing a beautiful wedding invitation, or capturing the spirit of the moment on a greetings card.

When most people think of calligraphy, they imagine a formal, restrained style of hand lettering. But Kirsten’s modern take on the traditional scribal art lends an edgy, urban twist to the words, allowing them to whisper, sing or shout. 

Kirsten’s latest project is a range of empathy cards, designed to help reconnect friends and family when somebody is going through a stressful life event. Drawing on her own experiences as a survivor of breast cancer, Kirsten’s new cards aim to fill the void when people are lost for words.

As promised, a note to say thank you for my beautiful art work.
I am so pleased I brought my poem to you, your design and colour choices enhance
all the emotions in the poet's words, I will treasure it always. Many, many thanks. PG
