Welcome to the work of Elizabeth Forrest, Lettering Artist

I am a Welsh-born lettering artist and papermaker, now living in Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
My work is a unique, highly personal response to text from varied sources that inspire me
and is based on a love of words, combined with a passion for colour, texture and pattern.
