Honiton teen inspires launch of new business
Couple remortgage their house.
A TEENAGE girl’s dream to give her bedroom an Andy Warhol-style make-over has led to the creation of a new business in Honiton.
Lisa and Richard Branson couldn’t find what Lisa’s daughter, Georgina, was looking for, so they crafted their own art, including a funky headboard. The headboard featured a pop art image of Georgina with her two cats.
The colourful result was so good the couple have now re-mortgaged their home and sold a prized Fiat 500 Sport car to pay for the launch of No Sheep Required. They have just taken on their first member of staff.
Providing bespoke photographic headboards, including educational designs, and garden art, Richard, 40, and Lisa, 38, hope their products, which are printed by A G Signs, in Honiton, will appeal to people of all ages.

“We can even turn pictures drawn by children at school into galleries of art,” said Lisa.
Richard, who is a full-time fireman, and Lisa, who owns a painting and decorating company, will not be giving up their day jobs - but hope to expand No Sheep Required into a lock-up and possibly take on more staff.
