Hayley van Beulen always loved tinkering with cars with her uncles. But when her application to study mechanical engineering at the False Bay TVET College Westlake Campus was unsuccessful, she opted for spray painting instead.

After completing her national certificate programme in Automotive Spray Painting, she was employed at Brandsigns Holdings, a leading manufacturer and installer of business signage products.

She says, “I'm really glad now that I wasn't accepted for motor mechanics because spray painting grew on me and has become my passion.”

Hayley has enjoyed her first six months in the world of work and has already completed projects that have been installed at several businesses. She says she finds it rewarding to see her work on public display and has been inspired to try new techniques, especially in colour mixing.

Hayley plans to gain as much experience as she can in her current job before exploring working abroad and starting her own business. A true creative, when not producing artful signage at work, the energetic graduate enjoys modelling and
dancing. And, of course, working on cars.
