Jackie Perkins

I am a lettering artist working mainly in stone and wood. A former stone conservator, I began lettercutting in 2011 and went on to complete a Historic Environment Scotland Craft Fellowship and a Lettering Arts Trust apprenticeship. I now work to commission from my Midlothian studio, using traditional methods of drawing, carving and finishing to create all manner of beautiful lettered works.

Jackie is a letter cutter, carver and designer based in Dalkeith. Her formal lettering training included a Historic Environment Scotland Craft Fellowship with The Colin Braid Stone Workshop in Midlothian, followed by a Lettering Arts Trust Apprenticeship with Eric Marland in Cambridge. Now based from her studio in Dalkeith, she works on private commissions, memorials, plaques and other lettering projects. Jackie works mainly in stone (slate, sandstone, limestone) and wood.
