Rebecca Flaherty is an illustrator, calligrapher, lettering artist and surface pattern designer, or as she prefers to put it, maker-of-pretty-things.
Hey there, I’m Bekki!
Most days you can find me hanging out at my desk, coffee in hand, surrounded by houseplants and up to my neck in patterns designs! I am mostly known for my hand lettering and calligraphy as well as my fresh and fun illustrations and surface patterns. The things I am most passionate about in life are family, faith, creativity, living small and sustainability.
My favourite mediums are watercolour and gouache which I have loved since I was a child! I also enjoy creating vector based patterns and in recent years I have started using Procreate for lettering and pattern design.
I sell my lettering, calligraphy and printables on Etsy and have a number of online stores where you can buy products with my artwork on them.
As a creative, I have worked with several high-profile and celebrity clients and have had my work featured by You & Your Wedding Magazine, The Jewish Chronicle, Moët & Chandon, Mrs2Be, Whimsical Wonderland Weddings and Hand Made Hunt. I think my biggest highlight so far has been making the place cards for the Game of Thrones season 7 costume department Christmas Party. Massive Fangirl!!
When I’m not busy working at my desk, you can catch me in the garden, cooking, out walking in the nearby countryside or watching any kind of period drama on TV!
If you’re dying to hear more, here are 5 things you might not know about me:
1. I love raiding charity shops for vintage or unusual clothing.
2. My favourite food is olives.
3. I make my own yogurt and bread every week.
4. When I was younger I wanted to be a hairdresser.
5. I am a closet Pokemon Go fan.
