I have worked for many years in the retail trade both sign writing and working within hospitality which has helped immensely with my chalkboard sign writing business.
I am completely independent of any pub company or brewery, work entirely for myself and have a fantastic list of regular customers some of whom have used me for over 10 years!
Over the years I have worked with such companies as Marston’s, JD Wetherspoon, Punch and most recently Greene King all over the UK.

Starting out working in a pub around the year 2000 I was asked by my boss to write the black board signage in and around the pub. Not having a clue about writing chalkboards and definitely not a chalk artist i gave it a go with my first a board blackboard. The results weren’t amazing at but over the years of working for various companies like JD Wetherspoon and Marston’s I slowly started to learn chalkboard art techniques and before long i was being asked to do pub chalkboards all over the UK.
Believe it or not, even though we call them chalkboards, chalk board artists very rarely use chalk! Instead we prefer to use professional grade chalkboard markers which are safe to use and waterproof for using outside. My preferred brands are Posca and Molotow chalk pens although Zig Posterman pens and chalk markers are also very popular. Try and avoid using Liquid Chalk or cheap knock off’s from the Cash and Carry as they really aren’t very good at all.
Although I am a Blackboard artist in the Midlands area I usually can travel depending on where you are. Failing that I am in regular contact with other chalkboard artists across the uk. If you are out of my catchment area please get in touch any way as I have a list of blackboard artists as well as knowledge of where to source chalkboard signs and a board blackboards.
As well as visiting licenced retailers onsite to write their chalkboard signs i have also designed wedding chalkboards including large table plans and have even written chalkboard style onto mirrors. I’ve also knocked out the odd kitchen chalkboard or three and have consulted on coffee shop menu board ideas as well as specialising in a board sign writing.
I mainly serve the Worcestershire, Midlands, South West and Shropshire areas having chalked signs in Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Worcester, Bromsgrove, Gloucester, Bristol, Stourbridge and South Wales although i have ventured further to Northampton, Leicester, Nottingham, Blackpool, Oxford and Peterborough! Please ask if you are out of my area, even if I can’t get to you I can help you find someone who can!
