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.

Saturday 22 May Spoleto

With only one week’s sojurn in the Umbrian landscape I have been necessarily selective in the places to which I have been. EH went on to Cita della Pieve (for the sake of Perugio, his birthplace), Foligno, Montefalco, Fabriano, and even Urbino, which now I now longer... read more
