Chiara is an English-Italian creative, living in East London with her husband and baby girl.  She is a graduate of the London College of Communication, and author of the best selling book ‘Nib + Ink’, published in March 2016 by Ebury, Penguin Random House (UK) and Abrams Noterie (US).

In 2011, Chiara created a unique studio - Lamplighter - which became one of the most sought after bespoke stationery, personalisation and modern calligraphy offerings in the UK, working with prestigious brands from Nike to Sothebys, Hermès and Jimmy Choo, and many VIPs. It was a wonderfully exciting, and frantically busy 7 years for the small creative team who were based in Hackney, but after the birth of her daughter Lyra, Chiara closed the beautiful doors on Lamplighter, and has realigned her focus on illustrating artwork and interior objects from her home studio.
