WHAT I DO

SERVICES

A little bit of everything!

I’m a tinkerer. Or am I a dabbler? Either way, I spend a great deal of my time exploring new materials and creative processes.  Finding my “niche” will likely be my life’s work and if I’m honest, I hope I never settle for one thing, because that is when the fun stops.
But to give you an idea of what I get up to in the studio, I’ll share some of my favourite creative pursuits below.

 

Hand Painted Signage

While there are not many of us about, traditional “brushies” do still exist and I am proud to be one of them! I can conceptualise, design, fabricate and hand paint bespoke signage for a wide range of applications, from private commissions to commercial and wedding/event signage. Detail is my specialty and I aim to exceed your expectations with the finished product.

You may be looking for a quality, bespoke piece that modern machinery can’t replicate. You may also see the value in traditional craft methods and appreciate that the end result is sure to impress!

Hand-painted signage is still used today for direct-to-surface applications where digitally printed signage will not last. I can paint directly onto almost any surface such as brick, render, cement, metal, wood, fabric and even glass. 

If brush work is really not your thing, I also offer laser cut signage for those smaller jobs that need a more polished look.

Wall Art & Murals

Art can easily transform a space, whether it be a hanging canvas piece, or a full scale mural that is painted directly to a wall.

I love to paint canvas pieces with careful consideration to the interiors where they will be installed. If you’re looking for something vibrant, something soft or something textured, from fluid abstracts to realism, I can help you achieve something truly beautiful to create an impressive statement in your space.

If you have a much larger space, be it interior or exterior, I can conceptualise, design and create a striking piece and paint it directly onto your surface. You may have a wall inside or outside of your home that lends itself to large scale art, or perhaps you have a business that deserves some incredible art to really wow your customers and create a lasting impression. I also have a keen interest in community beautification projects where art is used to enhance a public space.

Laser Cutting & Engraving

The newest addition to my studio is my very awesome c02 laser engraver. It enables me to cut and engrave a wide range of materials such as plywood, mdf, acrylic, traffolyte, some types of glass (engrave only) and many more. 

It’s particularly handy for jobs where precision is important and where a polished look is the desired outcome. Great for business signage, personalised gifts etc. 

I am always learning, experimenting and testing new ways to use this machine. If you think I might be able to help you with  something, then please reach out using the button below.
