the artist . natalie van hest
Natalie is the calligrapher and graphic artist behind Faven Lettering + Design. She creates ethereal, bespoke wedding stationary, signage and day-of details for events in organic calligraphy. She has worked in the Vancouver Film and Television Industry as an Assistant Art Director and Graphic Artist since graduating from the Vancouver Film School with a diploma in Art & Design. Her love of the limitless creativity of creating fictional worlds in film has inspired her to move into the wedding industry to create unique pieces for brides.
Natalie is a longtime Vancouver resident, and grew up in Nanoose Bay and Parksville on Vancouver Island. Her love of organic line and flowing shapes stemmed from the forests and rivers throughout the island, and you can see it frequently mirrored in her work.
When not testing out new inks on handmade paper, Natalie can be found camping, hiking, checking out movies and riding her new street motorcycle down the highway (bit of a contrast from the brand eh?)
