Lucia Leyfield

Hand lettering and paper


Initially trained as a typographer Lucia found it, at the time, too computer based for her liking. It was drawing letters that she loved so  she learnedthe noble art of lettering with the support of some wonderful master craftsmen and women. Her passion is drawn lettering but she has, over the years, developed skills in both traditional and more modern, experimental calligraphy. Much of her work is cut in stone or laser cut/photo-etched from steel and it is this application of lettering which excites her.

Lucia is also very interested in papercraft, sign writing, illustration, print and pattern and these also form the basis of many of the courses she develops for New Brewery Arts which are open to all from complete beginners to professional artists and everyone inbetween!
