THROWBACK THURSDAY! Featuring: Tapestries by Shanne

Tapestries by Shanne  was one of Paxton Signs’ first dimensional signs. Designed in 1987 and measuring approximately 4′ x 2.5′, the sign was custom-shaped and sandblasted in high density urethane. The background surface was hand-painted in a deep blue, faux finish, with darker shading surrounding the different groupings of cream-white letters. Rust and orange trim grounded the dark blue background, adding a colorful contrast.

The accomplished Shanne Hilleman still designs tapestries, or Soft Media, as she calls her craft. Fiber arts may continue to be her main focus, but, as an accomplished musician, she also teaches piano and pursues other skills and interests such as courtroom steno writing, art education, Spanish and social issues. You can find her on LinkedIn:

Paxton Signs’ more than 37 year history includes hundreds of signs. Some are major monument signs, some small business signs. We’ve created ranch signs, lighted signs, signs made from recycled wood, hand-painted signs, carved signs, vehicle and fleet graphics – a continuous variety of communication art, serving Fort Collins and northern Colorado.
