Lynne Muir uses the ancient art of calligraphy in new and exciting ways, creating works of art that reflect their traditional roots from medieval and various cultural origins.
Many of her works are inspired by Celtic or Persian themes.
More recently she has explored the texts of John Muir, Scots/American wilderness campaigner and the concept of pilgrimage for today’s culture.
Her background is in designing and illustrating childrens’ wildlife and adult giftbooks.
Commissioned work can be as diverse as designing and inscribing a birth certificate, a bookplate, a photo mount for your football team or beautifully decorated captions and scrolls on the matt of your favourite wedding photo.
