The first time I visited Quill, was for a beginners calligraphy workshop two years ago and it felt like I had just entered Aladdin's cave! A beautiful stationery and workshop studio just a short walk from Angel tube station, full of amazingly pretty stationery and those who know me, know I have a real fetishise when it comes to stationery.
Not only is Quill perfect for picking up gorgeous stationery for yourself or a gift, but also for learning a new craft. Offering calligraphy workshops for beginners and improvers as well as a full day intensive. Lucy Edmonds, the founder of Quill London is so friendly and welcoming and has also recently launched her own calligraphy book: Modern Calligraphy: A Step-by-Step Guide Book. Quill London is Clerkenwell's hidden gem - well worth a visit.
My background is as a wedding & lifestyle photographer, shooting both digital and film to create authentic, soft and natural fine art photographs. Working primarily with natural light to give my work a beautiful, light and airy touch infused with soft tones.
I have always appreciated and valued the simple things in life and finding the interesting in the ordinary. Coco Lane was founded as I wanted to create something that is about an experience, the slower pace of life, cosiness and candlelight, cuddling up on the sofa with loved ones, being with the people you love, sharing food with close friends, a feeling of home, nurturing a chosen career, wanderlust travels, savouring the small moments in everyday life and just being you and enjoying a cup of tea.
I'm excited to bring you stories that promote all those moments in life that give us value and meaning; inspiring us to live beautifully.
"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is. Go at it full speed. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it, and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good" - Roald Dahl
