Sheen Mortlake Fascia Nick Garrett Signwriter

Nick on the fascia 72

Home grown London boy first picked up the brush in 1975 with his grandfather.  

Making an off the cuff phone call 5 years later to Watney’s Brewery lead to his first 10 years as a classic London Brewery gilder and pictorial sign artist.

Quality in the making and painting was always at the heart of the life of an apprentice.  Still at the heart of NGS today 40 years on from those founding days as a lad up the ladder, keeping the tradition alive.
