New Forest based artist Tony Slade has developed many of his artistic skills during a 36 year career as a Traditional Signwriter.

Over the years he has worked on thousands of top quality signwriting and pictorial sign projects.

It all began in 1980 when Tony’s father also a signwriter started to teach him the skills that have provided a perfect platform on which to build a career in art.

“It was just a case of teaching myself how to paint for art’s sake instead of adhering to a commercial & corporate brief… I am thankful for the experience I have had as a signwriter.. this has been of huge benefit to my work, but art is way more fun!”
