Me and painting
It all started when I was given a set of watercolour paints when I was 10 years old. I drew and painted incessantly from that point.
I have always been fascinated by the built environment and loved looking at and drawing and running around in what was left of the industrial revolution in Wolverhampton and somehow ended up studying architecture at St. John’s College, Cambridge.
For a long time my day job got in the way of painting and I spent a lot of time doodling ferociously on conference calls while my painting was crammed into weekends and evenings but, over the last few years, I have dedicated a lot more time to painting. My work is usually watercolour but you'll see I use it in quite a few different ways.
These are custom made, unique artworks that capture the individual story of your life through a series of buildings or places that are important to you. This can be the houses that you lived it throughout your life or your favourite places or the whole street that you grew up on. These are ink drawings with watercolour to provide warmth and vibrancy.
