It is an utterly uplifting experience to be able to just sit and draw in a place and become a part of that place for a few hours.

My passion is sketching and painting the world around me in my annotated sketchbook diaries.
My passion is sketching and painting the world around me in my sketchbook diaries. Standing in situ I draw with a black biro as much as I can of what is going on around me, adding colour with my small field box of watercolours.
Four of my sketchbooks have been published – two volumes of ‘London in Landscape’, the ‘Stamford Sketchbook’, and ‘ A Fellow Traveller’, which records my sketchbook journey inspired by World Heritage Cities from Paris to Kathmandu as a Churchill Fellow.
In London I was ‘artist in residence’ at the Athenaeum, the Houses of Parliament, the Queen’s Club and ‘MCC Young Cricket Artist’ at Lord’s. Now based in Stamford I’ve been involved in wonderful local projects, working with Mindspace, The Arts Centre, Stamford Civic Society and Burghley Horse Trials, to name just a few.
I undertake delightfully diverse commissions for individuals, such as painting places with special meaning to them, or creating bespoke illustrations for their projects. I also lead sketching workshops for all levels and ages and give illustrated talks. For further information about ‘me and my work’:
