Cherrell Avery

I am a professional lettering artist from North London and a Fellow of the Society of Scribes and Illuminators and Calligraphy and Lettering Arts Society.

My work is regularly exhibited and can be found in the V&A museum collection and private collections around the world. I am currently working with the medium of etched and glazed brass. I also create paper structures and use colour and gold leaf to aid visual expression of the words I inscribe.

A graduated in traditional calligraphy, I teach the subject to professional level and am the Course Convenor for SSI advanced training scheme. I am a handwriting specialist, providing both remedial assistance and style development for adults and children. I was calligrapher in residence at V&A in 2012 and have run many lettering related workshops and events for the public in London galleries and museums.
