Sussex based illustrator supports local charity

Modern calligrapher and illustrator Amy Goble has created a range of stunning Christmas cards from her studio in Shoreham.

Amy’s Christmas cards, which include a 10% donation to Rockinghorse, feature beautiful illustrations of some of Brighton’s best-known landmarks like the Pavilion, Palace Pier and the bandstand on Hove seafront along with Amy’s exquisite hand-lettered calligraphy.

Amy started her own business, the Amyverse, in 2018 and along with creating greetings cards, she also offers a bespoke wedding stationery service for couples tying the knot.

And the whole process is a real joy for Amy who has loved creating ever since she was a child: “I have drawn for as long as I can remember so being able to include personal illustrations in my stationery is something I love.”

The talented artist chose to support the charity after seeing their call for support on social media: “I chose Rockinghorse as I saw a post on Instagram about their funding taking a severe hit and I wanted to do something to help.

I thought my Christmas cards would be a great way to fund raise and encourage people to stay connected at this difficult time. I understand the difficulties the charity sector is facing when demand and pressures for services are increasing.

I also really wanted to work with a local charity, especially for my Brighton illustration cards. I felt it was important that they cards were giving back to a local organisation; the work that Rockinghorse do is so important and vital for the children and their families.”

So, if you would like to buy some of these lovely cards, head over to Amy’s shop on Etsy to see what designs are available: www.etsy.com/uk/listing/736594766
