Hello and welcome to the Lush Letters Studio!
I’m Faiza, the calligrapher and design artist behind LLS. I’m currently based in Perth, Western Australia but who knows where life will take us next!
I’ve always been known as the “creative one” among my friends and I love crafty projects. Ever since I was little, I loved going to stationery stores more than toy stores, and can still spend hours at my local Officeworks trying out every new pen and stroking the texture on different types of paper.
My love for lettering bloomed in early 2014 when I attended my first modern calligraphy workshop in Singapore. Having already been a part of the wedding styling industry, I thought modern calligraphy was just something I could offer my clients as a quick add on. I had no idea what an art it was in itself and how much skill, practice and patience it takes to create beautiful hand-lettering,
Since picking up the pointed pen, I haven’t been able to put it down. Three and a half years later, I decided to take my passion to the next stage and Lush Letters Studio was born.
I love to teach hands-on workshops as well and it makes me happy to be able to share this craft with others!
When I’m not in my studio, my life can be a nutty whirlwind of school runs, laundry and dinners but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. My favourite moments are when my two kids are in my happy crafty place, crafting along with me. I’m a terrible hoarder of crafty supplies and a better baker than cook.
