I've loved architecture for a very long time. I can't walk past quirky buildings, crumbly shopfronts, elegant streets or palatial mansions without wanting to stop, take a thousand photos and draw every little detail. I've pretty much always lived by the sea and have spent a lifetime motoring, sailing and living aboard numerous boats, so these days my illustrations are filled with snapshot details of living by the sea: coastal cottages, anything afloat and plenty of fish and marine creatures.
Having experimented with every type of pen, paint and thread at art college, I prefer a tight watercolour technique for accuracy, but also work with gouache, acrylic, pen and ink, and digital illustration software. All of the products are hand produced in my studio on the Isle of Wight and shipped around the UK, or scanned and sent digitally around the world. High quality professional grade paints, papers and giclee printing inks ensure that all art works are light fast and archival.
I love a creative design challenge, so please message with your design ideas and any further questions you may have, very much look forward to hearing from you.
