Nick Hearnshaw (Church Treasurer) – Comberbach Methodist Church

Hi Carl, I would just like to say how pleased we are with the scroll you have done at our church. Your artwork almost glows, especially the gold leaf lettering and I’m sure it hasn’t looked as good as that since the chapel was originally built in 1887.

Paul & Ann Webster – Proud owners of ‘Paul Ann’ka’

What a talented, conscientious artist is Carl Tickle (The Cheshire Brush)? He transformed our narrow boat, Paul Ann’ka, from a dull, tired boat, into a stunning, unique, floating work of art.

From the initial consultation to the finished product Carl was always on hand and approachable, no matter the time of day or evening. He was generous with his suggestions and guidance throughout the project. Apart from the agreed work, Carl went that extra mile – adding extra touches, which were simply stunning.

I had complete faith in Carl’s skills and I chose not to see the boat until it was completely finished, my husband decided to photograph the progression. He was so impressed with Carl’s work that each time he came home he tried to persuade me to look at the pictures – thankfully I resisted which meant that my first view of the boat was overwhelming! I could never have imagined we would own such a beautiful boat. I still find it hard to believe that one person could achieve as much as Carl did in the timescale of the job.

Thank you Carl, we appreciate your artistry, support, guidance and your sheer hard work.

Andy & Shirley – Dillon’s Dairy, Congleton, Cheshire

We would just like to thank you for a fantastic job in painting our dog cart.
We had no idea what finish or even colour we were looking for but with your guidance, know how and fantastic skill it turned out better than we could have ever imagined we really didn’t think it would look so authentic.
The cart came to you old tired, a bit battered and it came back like it had just been built.
This cart will be at shows all around the country and we will be very very proud to show it off.
Even Paddy seems to be prouder pulling his cart.
Thank you so much and Best Regards

Marge (Esther) moored at Nantwich Marina

I just wanted to say how delighted I was with Carl’s re-painting of my narrowboat, Esther. I have had literally dozens of compliments from people while we have been out on sailing trips on how lovely she looks. The finish of the whole paintwork is very impressive and the painted flowers I asked for as part of the artwork look stunning. The paintbrush-quill he painted on the front locker lid is very classy too and the detailed painting of the multi-colour tiller is fantastic. It must have taken hours! I asked for and very much appreciated Carl’s advice about the different shades of colours for the paint and he definitely has a professional eye for this because everything has turned out perfectly. Thank you!!

If you want traditional signwriting look no further than Carl Tickle (Cheshire Brush). You tell him how you want it to look and he paints it just how you imagined it to be. I’ve had two lorries signed and lined up and have another booked in to be done.
