Renowned for her Renaissance-inspired art, Fee Greening uses a traditional dip pen and ink method to create her mysterious and magical illustrations of hands, pearls and myriad curiosities. In her debut Papier collection, the London-based illustrator delivers a spellbinding selection of desk and wedding stationery, all designed to bring a dose of drama and theatrics to everyday life. Showcasing four-leaf clovers and ladybirds, strawberries and shells, buttercups and butterflies, the designs are a fresh take on the quintessential English country garden, good luck charms and Gothic art.shop collection
Whether it’s holding quills, shells or apples, hands are a recurring theme in Fee’s work: “I love the dramatic gestures of hands in Renaissance paintings and how you can decode the narrative by reading them.”
Be charmed by save the dates, invitations, menus and more that draw on natural palettes, botanicals and Fee's signature hand motifs for inspiration.
After studying at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art, Fee has fast become a favourite of the fashion crowd. She has been commissioned to illustrate for the likes of Liberty, Gucci and Alexa Chung. “I thought a lot about what I actually want from stationery and I concluded that with technology dominating our lives, putting a pen to paper should feel like a real treat. So I wanted to create something quite OTT. Even if you are just writing a shopping list you can channel a bit of Elizabeth I.” – Fee Greening.
To celebrate the launch, we hosted an evening of observational life drawing with Fee herself. The event took place at the luminous Fitzrovia Chapel, a hidden gem in the heart of the city, where press and influencers tried their hand at sketching objects inspired by Fee’s new collection.
