I’ve always wondered how these signs get painted.
It turns out it’s just talented freehand

Cheryl has a high attention to detail and it always shows in her effortless work.The added element of the team being able to source and blackboard paint the boards as well is such a bonus.

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.
