I'm Manon, Amsterdammer from the South of Holland with a background in media and marketing and a passion for pretty things. I've been drawing, painting and writing from an early age.

Five years ago, the engagement of dear friends made me follow my passion and start my own creative business. I signed up for a letterpress course, started learning calligraphy and watercolour and designed their wedding invitations.

Since then I made a whole lot of pretty things for lovely people, I got to design birth announcements for some adorable babies and I taught a lot of lovely people the art of calligraphy and watercolour.

I live in Amsterdam Oud-West, in a small but lovely apartment overlooking a canal, and have a studio at Lokaal Lokaal Amsterdam. When I'm not in the studio I like to go out for dinner and drinks, stroll the Westerpark with my dog or paddle board through the canals. I'm addicted to Latte Machiattos and Modern Family and I love to travel.

Planning a wedding and looking for the perfect invitations or do you want to welcome your baby with a truly unique birth announcement? Looking for a calligrapher for an event, or want to plan a private workshop in the studio? Contact me to discuss the possibilities!
