Fascias, shop fronts, sign panels, glass work, and gallery specialists


Born and bred in London, I am a traditional sign writer, gilder and maker with over 30 years experience. Most of my work is in central London but I also have my family and product development studio in Italy where I develop glass gilding and various specialist products – hence the Italian mobile number.

May 1 2012 sees my new studio in 274 Queenstown Road, Battersea open, so stay posted and connect here for our regular updates.

Fantastic signwriting made by hand in the true craftsmanship tradition…

For the past 15 years I have been delivering powerful brand design.

That work looks great, Thank you. I’ve noted your other areas of expertise and I’m sure that we’ll work together in the future. Andrew Catterall, Reflect Construction UK

The execution is superb… it’s very rare to see someone love what they do… Phil Monk, Head Curator, Tate Modern, London

Quality, and service are the two strengths I guarantee. But most of all I think it is always genuine creative passion that will speak volumes for your business sign acquisition.

Cool distressed gilded mirror effects…

Welcome to distressed gilded mirror effects

Antiqued gilded mirrors are becoming increasingly popular as focal point design statements whether in the lounge, restaurant or master bedroom.  I have been gilding aged mirror panels for years now and have a few new samples here for you to enjoy.

Just email me for design ideas and costings for your gilded project.

Glass gilding s something I specialse in. It is a classic touch to any project but can add striking contemporary richness when handled in a fresh way.
