Ink & Snow is a Newcastle-based business, creating beautiful hand-painted bespoke signage, calligraphy and custom watercolours. Run solely by artist Alisha Milajew ('Lish' as she prefers to be called), she sees that every aspect of her work is designed and created by hand.
From a very early age, Lish had a passion for fine arts and creating the ‘hand-made’.
After completing her studies in Fine Arts, she went on to pursue her other passion – travel. Her backpack contained a set of Windsor & Newton watercolours, and a sketch book she used to document the buildings and vistas of her travels.
During her travels through Italy, she painted wall murals in numerous Hotels as a resident artist.
After returning to her home town of Newcastle, Ink & Snow was created in 2015, after having noticed a stunning menu chalkboard that an interstate artist had created for a café in Perth, she decided to embrace her love for calligraphy and lettering.
Ink & Snow is known mainly for custom hand-painted signs, including welcome signs, menu chalkboards, seating plans, table numbers, custom calligraphy and placecards.
Ink & Snow is an in-house studio in Dudley NSW, open by appointment only.
