New Forest based artist Tony Slade has developed many of his artistic skills during a 39 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.

“My art gives me the freedom to paint what inspires me…  After many years sign-writing to a corporate brief it is refreshing to paint from the heart, with passion, and to produce striking and atmospheric art. I want people to feel something when they see my work, to almost hear and smell the sea… feel the wind or the warmth of the sun… hopefully I have achieved that.”
