New hand painted Welcome to Trenton signs go up

If you have entered the City of Trenton this past week you might have noticed the new welcome signs.

The signs were hand painted by local artist and sign painter Leilani Adams who lives near Bell. Leilani has the Some Girl Painting business which she operates out of her family home.

Leilani moved to the area just a year and a half ago. She grew up in the Clearwater area and is very glad to be here living the country life. She comes from a very creative family who are always trying to outdo each other.

She began her artistic career pin striping vehicles and now she does restoration, race car lettering, custom signs, sculpture, photography, traditional paintings, murals, sketches, cartoons and illustrations.

When asked how she got the welcome sign job for the city Leilani said, “I just walked in and asked, you don’t get unless you ask.” She went on to say that she makes sketches and thinks with her  pencil.

She said that the City Manager Lyle Wilkerson and the city staff were wonderful to work with.

The new City of Trenton welcome signs are each individually hand painted in a vintage postcard style which has an old Florida feel.  Each letter represents a part of the community and includes the high school mascot tigers, train, quilt, deer, forest, church and farm.
