An introduction to my work

line divider

For twenty years I have been producing architectural perspectives and visualisations for architects, property developers and estate agents. During many of those years I was also running a Gallery and Picture Framing business in the Cotswolds, but since 2009 I have devoted myself to the drawing board full-time.

I now work from a home studio in Great Malvern as an artist and architectural illustrator. Mostly I work in traditional pencil and watercolour producing exterior perspectives, coloured elevations, overviews of larger developments and site maps for planning applications as well as for brochure use. I also paint house portraits to commission on a regular basis.

Judge Sampson have published my ‘Cotswolds in Watercolour’ calendar annually since 2002 along with postcards and other merchandising.

Occasionally I like to have a solo exhibition of paintings and the last one was in the Gallery at the Theatre Chipping Norton in March 2014, having been their Artist-in-Residence for the year. This gives free reign to my imagination and helps feed fresh enthusiasm to the rest of my commissioned work! I am an inveterate sketcher and I kept a sketchbook journal of life in the Theatre throughout the year.

Tuesday 18 May – Gubbio

Last night I was fed up, so I went to bed early, finished the ‘difficult’ sudoku from last Sunday’s Independent, then slept for ten hours to 8 o’clock this morning (but for the usual call of nature in the dark; the sleeping hills all around look wonderful at night,... read more
