Calley is a lifetime Putney resident, and recent graduate of Central Saint Martins college of Art and Design where she completed a BA in Textile design. Whilst at Saint Martins, Calley specialized in knit, though discovered a passion for illustration by her third year. Soon after, she set about sketching all sorts of quirky locations, applying soft 1950s pastel colours to often-drab grey cityscapes; this remains an important feature of her style as an artist.
