Davina has been fascinated by the art of calligraphy ever since she can remember and sees its renaissance as a long overdue reaction to the conformity of computerised type. "Calligraphy gives voice to the written word - a poem or piece of prose gains significance when the words themselves have been crafted by a skilled hand".

In addition to covering commissions from the corporate world, the arts, charities, design studios, television and private clients, Davina has been called upon to produce presentations for the Royal Household on a number of occasions.

Her work was selected for the Society of Scribes & Illuminators 'Calligraphy in Print' exhibition in 1987. She is an active member of the SSI and the Letter Exchange and continues to attend international symposiums and masterclass workshops.

Established as a professional scribe since 1981, she went on to win a prestigious Queen Elizabeth Scholarship from the Royal Warrant Holders Association which enabled further dedicated study with masters of the art in the UK, Belgium and North America.
