Bio below

Helen is a hand lettering artist based in West Sussex, working in a variety of styles using watercolour, ink, brush pens, paint brushes and nib.
She developed a love for type when designing her wedding stationery back in 2017 and calligraphy quickly became her favourite pastime, evolving into a passion she wanted to share with others.
Shortly after getting married Helen set up her own design studio Wallace Lettering, where she now designs custom lettering for corporate brands, bespoke wedding stationery, greeting card designs, signage & chalk boards.

      Wonderful garden well worth a visit. Great variety of plants showing so many ways of portraying a garden layout. Must comment on the great tea and cakes selection, our dog loved the doggy ice cream!

      Beautifully planted area, in which you are encouraged to walk along paths between the plants so can be completely surrounded by foliage - a lovely effect.
