We love seeing the process behind our favourite creatives, and today we're excited to bring you this behind the scenes by KATIE NICOLLE PHOTOGRAPHY of the very talented CORSIVO CALLIGRAPHY. Styled impeccably by RAE & MOORE the team were inspired to tell the story that goes into creating each fine art calligraphy piece. In a world that is full of electronic correspondence, Carmela believes in keeping the art of the written form alive. Each time she the nib touches the paper, she feels alive. She takes pleasure in creating bespoke stationery and art pieces that serve as tangible reminders of the important things in life: love and family. To her, they're more than just stationery - they tell your story.
Carmela became engrossed with the world of art and calligraphy as a young girl when she sat alongside her mother and nonna ("grandmother" in Italian), carefully learning to write each letter of the alphabet. She continued to pursue her love of the arts and literature by taking the opportunity to study in Italy both in secondary school as well as in university. These experiences contributed to the development and shaping of her passion for hand-lettering, calligraphy, finding beauty and inspiration in sculptures, architectural structures, nature, and the works of great artists and writers. The lessons she learned during those formative years helped her to become the person she is today.
