Hand painted house names

I am a self-taught signwriter.

There are reportedly around 300 signwriters carrying on the age old tradition of signwriting throughout the UK.

With brush and paint in hand we carry out our craft to the marvel of many an onlooker. Shops, churches, boats, pubs, to name but a few.

So why not commission your own piece of wall art - framed as a picture to hang on your wall, and help to keep the tradition alive.

Commission a personalised name plaque for your home: letters or numbers!

Here shown a couple of examples, they can be varnished or painted and signwritten with your choice of colours.
