About Barbara

Barbara studied show card and ticket writing in 1967 and hasn’t put down her brushes since. That's 47 years of lettering experience!

Barbara produced thousands of ticket cards for Myer Melbourne, Grace Bros. and other retail outlets in Sydney. She started her own show card, ticket writing and screen printing studio producing retail and promotional signage. She’s also a seasoned teacher, having taught ticket writing and calligraphy classes both privately and through TAFE NSW.

Barbara’s enthusiasm for lettering is contagious! She is thrilled to hear that lettering is making a huge comeback in the design scene, and wants to pass on her years of experience to fellow lettering nerds and type aficionados.

Barbara's special skills need to be shared with others. Barbara has taught to hundreds of students from all over Australia. In 2016, an online course was launched and now lettering lovers can flourish globally.

About Barbara

Barbara Enright had a successful career as a commercial sign-maker and calligrapher, while being consistently involved in the creative arts. She mastered the lettering brush at an early age, through TAFE and being an apprentice in the retail visual merchandising departments.

Barbara worked in Showcard and ticket writing since the 1960’s, and had a successful sign business for 30 years, before turning her focus onto the creative arts. She studied at the Julian Ashton Art School, completed a Fine Arts Diploma course at Sydney Gallery School Meadowbank in 2012, and founded a neighbourhood artists group that continued to meet for monthly painting days over many years. In recent years, Barbara’s brush lettering practice has been revived, thanks to a mentoring relationship with a young graphic designer, based in Melbourne, and that has led to a new business running regular brush lettering workshops. She’s passionate about passing her lifelong skills onto the next generation, and believes those hand-skills like brush lettering and calligraphy can be a therapeutic craft.
