My hairdresser, Hayley commissioned me to redesign the chalk boards at her beautiful salon, the Maypole Hair Gallery at Cefn Mawr near to Wrexham. She wanted a bright and colourful design for each of the boards with illustrations, price lists and information about treatments.
The Posca chalk markers worked beautifully on the black board and the colours were much more vibrant than chalks. This was the first time I had done anything quite like this and of this scale in front of the public before, so I was pretty anxious. The boards were fixed high up on the walls, so I had to work from a step ladder – my body and brain didn’t take too kindly to this at all! Despite my wobbles, I didn’t fall off the ladder and managed to get all three boards glammed up in a couple of days.

Here is my submission for the Art Moves billboard competition. The competition entries should represent the slogan ““Where is the meaning? At the top or at the bottom?”. Art Moves are a dead interesting group of artists who exhibit billboard art in Poland and the UK. Check them out at http://artmovesfestival.org/
