Vicky trained as a Graphic Designer and worked in television for many years in video & animation. She started Signs of the Sea in 2013 and now works full-time making crafts. Her early collections of signs were heavily influenced by the beautiful Gower coast and reflected the local beaches, surfing, sailing, and other watersports.
Now, the collections have grown to include many themes and some are also available in the Welsh language.Every hand-painted wooden sign is made from scratch in Wales. The timber used is either recycled or birch plywood from sustainable sources.
Every driftwood item starts with walkson local Gower beaches collecting shells, driftwood and other found objects.Although Vicky’s products can now be found in many shops she still likes to take part in local markets and craft fairs, trying out new products and getting public opinion on her new creations.
