Gorilla Spirits Tropical Mural
When Gorilla Spirits asked us to create a custom mural for their brand new visitors centre at the distillery we couldn’t be more excited! We began by putting together a selection of mood boards and ideas, trying to decide whether to keep it monochrome and fitting with the branding, or whether to go for a brighter approach. After going through a selection of designs and mock-ups we decided to keep it black and white, wanting something super bold and punchy to match their gorilla logo.
Working with a cherry picker and high quality paints, we executed this mural over the space of a week and couldn't be more happy with the outcome. Measuring at 2 stories high, this is definitely our biggest mural yet, and we can’t wait for the distillery to open so we can pay them another visit!

Spinnaker Tower Toymaker’s Workshop
“We commissioned 2 Sisters to design and paint a festive mural and exterior signs for our Santa’s Workshop. Lauren and Chloe were brilliant to work with. They interpreted the brief perfectly and we’re thrilled with the final result. I would definitely recommend them.”
We were hired by The Spinnaker Tower to transform their cabin into a magical Christmas workshop space. We were excited to use the back wall as a large mural space, and started by hand-drawing a design which captured the Spinnaker Tower’s branding along with a new range of lettering styles that suited the festive theme.
Using high quality materials to withstand the cold and rainy weather, we transformed the inside into a warm and magical setting, creating the perfect backdrop for the Christmas period. Initially they planned to leave the front of the cabin, but felt as if it needed to make more of an exciting first impression. We suggested adding snow and elf legs, nothing too complex, but in-keeping with the rest of the designs.
We had a brilliant time creating these pieces, and can’t wait to work with The Spinnaker Tower again.
Get Yourself Connected
We created this mural for the Openreach Offices in Bristol to represent their brilliant team work and connection of super fast broadband to the area. Designed by Lauren and Chloe and then hand-painted using the corporate colours, we absolutely loved creating this piece.
King Henry viii at the mary rose museum
Not necessarily a mural, but still a pretty awesome painting job to do, we absolutely loved painting the Mary Rose Museum's King Henry VIII Statue at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
When we saw a post on Facebook from the museum reaching out for help to freshen up their statue we jumped at the opportunity, and after meeting with the lovely team we were chosen to strip back and re-paint the figure. Using tough, weatherproof paints, we worked non-stop to get Henry looking just as good as new.
Make sure to check him out at the entrance of the Mary Rose Museum and Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
After creating many murals and signs for different companies and individuals, Lauren decided it was about time she did one for herself.
Using her favourite colours and lettering styles, this piece was hand drawn, digitally edited, and hand-painted onto her bedroom wall. Making the world a pretty place is a saying the 2 Sisters love, and is a great thing to wake up and see painted on your wall.
We were commissioned by Whiteley Shopping Centre in Fareham to create their Summer Circus Garden, along with 4 giant murals. By sketching designs, digitally creating the artwork and then hand-painting onto wood, we created free-standing outdoor murals which made an excellent backdrop for whole event.
This is one of our favourite jobs to date and we absolutely love the colours and circus font, painting on this scale is a really exciting challenge.

sue till studios
A good friend of ours was looking to spruce up her office space and wanted something personal but bright and eye-catching for her clients to see when they visited. She loves visiting America and wanted something beach-themed but not your traditional nautical seaside beach huts.
After creating a selection of designs, we opted for South Beach Miami Lifeguard towers, with a sign-post of Sue’s favourite places to visit.
Working with a shared house space in Southsea, we were commissioned to create a number of murals and pieces of artwork to make the house more homely and welcoming. We started with a statement piece up the stairs, taken from the road name, using colours of the hallway.
We also added a small lettering mural next to the front door, as a welcome home to all residents. Using vintage circus lettering and a modern colour scheme, we were really pleased with the overall finish.
Small Island Catering Ltd.
After creating exterior signage for the incredible Small Island Catering, we were asked back to create interior signs, as well as a Caribbean inspired mural for their feature wall.
Wanting to capture the sunshine vibes of Small Island's roots, we went for an idyllic scene of palm trees and turquoise waves. Make sure to check Small Island Catering out, based on Fawcett Road, Southsea.
CheeseFestUK are all about bringing the cheesiest cheeses in the world to cities all over the UK, and when they approached us looking for design work we couldn't be more excited!
Looking for 'face in hole' boards with a cheese theme, we pitched CheeseFest a selection of ideas. We then narrowed them down to 4 and began hand painting them onto 2m wooden boards with cheese chunk supports.
Seeing them travel all over the UK was excellent, especially when they came to Portsmouth and we could see the public trying them out for themselves.
After making a small selection of signs for Time Out Cafe in Leigh Park, they asked us back to re-design their children's play area. They wanted to create a Pooh Bear theme, and we were keen to keep it in the style of the traditional books.
Hand-painting the area in a water colour style, we made sure the paint was hard wearing and would withstand many sticky fingers and crayon scribbles.
