About Gabrielle

Welcome to Gabrielle Izen Design, home of beautiful greeting cards, stationery, artwork, personalised products and gifts celebrating different occasions

I’m an illustrator and modern calligrapher and create all my work by hand using traditional methods; dip pens, Japanese reed pens, Indian inks, watercolour paints and metallic paints. Typography is also used in some of my designs. I studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Chelsea School of Art and was very fortunate to have been taught by Quentin Blake.

I like to tell a story with my work, each artwork creates a mood or memory, all to be treasured. The natural world and old-fashioned courtesies are sources of inspiration; from plants and flowers, messages of love and kindness to finds on the beach and woodland walks. The essence of this work is to create a sense of well-being that would enhance the home.

Time is taken to produce the work and I endeavour to create original and beautiful pieces that people love to give and receive.

Philosophy

Treading lightly

I’m keen to support UK industry so all the print and production is done in Kent. The envelopes are made at a Yorkshire mill. They match the cards and are 150gsm, which give a feel of luxury. The paper stock is FSC accredited and carries the ISO 9706 ‘long life’ certification.

The paper waste is recycled or composted. The other waste is either recycled or taken to a steam power station in East Kent and incinerated which generates electricity for the local area.

Most of the packaging I use is recyclable, including the Jiffy bags. In some cases, waterproof mailers will need to be used and the card and art print cellophane bags are not currently recyclable.

I believe it’s possible to combine beautiful products with sustainability, and I’m proud to say my work is made in England.

    "My husband is a keen diarist / note keeper, especially when we travel. His birthday is during our current trip to Canada and Vermont. This journal is just perfect for him- beautiful leather cover, high quality writing paper and a lovely, hand written, travel related quotation on the first page. I chose to pay extra for a personally chosen quotation and am delighted with the result. I am sure my husband will be too on his birthday next week. I would highly recommend this product and seller."
