Hello there, I’m Amanda and I am originally from Brisbane Australia but I have been living in the UK since 1994. I have worked in retail for a number of years, I’ve been a horse-riding guide in Portugal and a PA in London. I now live in the beautiful market town of Leek in Staffordshire with my partner and 2 boys. I love machine knitting, anything to do with wool, early mornings, a good cup of coffee and sunflowers.

I have always had a passion for drawing and hand lettering and hoped one day I could create a business utilising these skills.

My business began when I created some chalkboard designs for a friend’s wedding. The boards drew lots of attention and I was soon asked to create personalised chalkboards for a variety of weddings, restaurants, shops and hotels. This encouraged me to launch my own business ‘Just Add Chalk’, after years of enjoying artistic pursuits purely for pleasure.

For weddings I can produce a wide variety of signs to suit the unique style of your special day. Take a look through my gallery to find ideas and inspiration that will finish off your wedding decorations perfectly.

I work mainly in a 20 mile radius of Leek, Staffordshire but if there is something you really love then contact me and we can discuss your options.

Kindest regards


this is me
