Hello, my name is Mark Weston, I work as an artist and traditional signwriter and I live in the seaside town of Littlehampton.
My work as an artist is hugely important to me, having drawn and painted since early childhood. The paintings are largely landscapes, seascapes and garden scenes in acrylic, watercolour and oil. With the style tending to have an impressionistic yet contemporary feel, taking inspiration from the West Sussex landscape and coast, and the North Cornish coast, particularly Polzeath, Rock and Padstow.
Alongside my work as an artist, I work as a signwriter, with the aim of providing a high quality, sign writing service, from design to completion. This includes all aspects of traditional signwriting from beautiful hand-painted house names to honours boards, shopfronts vintage vehicles, gold leaf and pictorial work.
It is interesting to see that in the digital age there is still a strong and growing demand for unique and individual hand-painted sign work.
