From a simple line of pencil on paper, the development from sketch to a fully realized sign in all its flourishes is the best part of hand lettering. Shaping, by hand and by brush, the lines and curves of letterforms, along with creating a balance between letters is the most challenging and rewarding part of sign painting. My academic work draws on my experience in public art and bridges the commercial and conceptual realms through the application of a variety of materials and surfaces.
