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.
