Cheryl McLean | My Story
Award Winning Blackboard Artist
From the time I learnt to read and write, I have had a love of beautiful lettering; this, inspired by my architect grandfather who mesmerised me as a child, as I watched him create beautiful copperplate lettering with pen and ink.
I studied to enter the world of signwriting, back in the 90’s, and started my own business mostly doing hand-painted signage on shop windows. I was never more happy than with a brush in hand!!
The requests for handwritten blackboards began coming in and Blackboard Art was born. Every job became a work of art with bright illustrations and colourful lettering and the trend nowadays is more of a streamlined sophistication, with minimal illustration.
