Creator of Signwriting by Hannah

Having come from a particularly artistic family,
I have always been surrounded by art and creativity.
This led me to taking an Art Foundation Course
at Plymouth College of Art and Design before
progressing on to Bath Spa University, where I
graduated with a BA(Hons) in Graphic Design
and Illustration in 2007. 

After graduating, I found myself in a variety of
careers, including being an electrician, a firefighter
and then a canal boat electrician/painter. Over the
years I have built up an extensive portfolio of skills,
including mental, physical and interpersonal skills
which have ultimately led me to where I am today.

Whilst working at Semington Dock in Wiltshire,
I soon realised my potential as a signwriter and
after a couple of years painting canal boats, I took
the plunge and moved to London to pursue my dream. Whilst learning the tricks of the trade
alongside a renowned signwriter for a few months,
I built up the skill and confidence to venture out on
my own and I haven’t looked back since.

I now take on a variety of signwriting jobs including
canal boats, chalkboards for pubs and restaurants
and wedding signage, alongside my other passion
of pencil portraits.
