ABOUT BRUSH & PEN DESIGN STUDIO

Liane has been around signwriting since the age of 4 when her father started his own signwriting business in his back yard – you could say she has paint in her veins!!!

At age 20 Liane worked in her Father’s business, Barker Signs, first as an apprentice and later as a partner. She became one of only a few female sign writing apprentices to win the highest honour of Top Apprentice for Queensland.

It was here she learnt the foundational skills of signwriting as well as a business acumen that has given her a lifelong career in Signage and Design.

With a career spanning 30 years in the sign and design industry, Liane has embraced both traditional and digital technologies in her work which has been received over the years with great satisfaction from her clients.

Liane recently returned to her traditional skillset of creating hand painted signage for clients wanting a unique point of difference to showcase their brand and was proud to be involved in the signwriting of the recently refurbished iconic Burleigh Pavilion situated on the rocks at Burleigh Heads Beach.

Liane’s sign work has been showcased internationally in Chicago (2017) and London (2018) where she was the only Australian Signwriter to be featured in both shows. She was fortunate to connect and work with other innovative and creative traditional signwriters on a trip around the world in 2018. It was during these travels she witnessed a resurgence of traditional hand painted signage in UK, Ireland, Europe and USA and people wanting to learn the craft.

Having witnessed a serious decline in the formal training of traditional signwriting and an increase in designers now being approached to create signage design, Liane’s passion is to pass on the traditional skills of sign design, layout (especially for large external signage) and brush skills to ensure the true craft of signwriting remains and good lettering prevails!

Liane started The Brush & Pen Design Studio in January 2017 offering customised traditional signwriting and gold leaf signage as well as signwriting/lettering workshops from her home-based studio in Gordon Park.

In 2019 Liane will travel to USA to be one of 14 instructors at the Brushmasters Getaway 5 day Signwriting, Pinstriping and Airbrushing retreat to be held in Colorado.
