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.
I’m keen to support UK industry so the print and paper merchants are based in Kent. The print presses are carbon neutral and the print warehouse is solar powered. 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 waste is recycled, composted at home or incinerated at a nearby steam power station which generates electricity for the local area. The used printer ink cartridges are recycled at Empties Please Ltd.
Most of the packaging is recyclable and biodegradable, from the Jiffy bags, cello bags to the waterproof mailers. Multiple cards purchased in a single order will be packed in units in a single cello bag.
I believe it’s possible to combine beautiful products with sustainability, and I’m proud to say my work is made in England.
