One in the Duchy

Another special house drawn, for a special occasion, with details only the owner will appreciate. This one is located in the Duchy of Cornwall, where scones are served the ‘right’ way. (That’s jam first, cream on top – next door in Devon they do it the ‘other’ way. Discussion?)

I have availability for commissions for Christmas (!) so don’t wait too long.

Town House

What better gift for a birthday or anniversary present than a unique drawing of your house. Or how about a gift for yourself just because you can.

This is a lovely town house, somewhere north of London and includes a personal memory.

Life is a circle

One of my early commissions, three years ago, was ‘The Shed’. It was the new workshop of Karen of @karensquilts. All sorts of ‘additions’ appeared – Cheryl, the crow; Lance, the good knight; Treacle, the family’s late cat – and a strange dog who was who was, perhaps, a premonition of Arthur, the cockapoo.
Karen has now moved to Devon, and for her special birthday, I was commissioned to draw her new home. This is the barn, The Old Granary. And Karen and Ray now have a real Arthur to keep them company.

Smashed it!

A tidy modern house, somewhere in central southern England, commissioned for a birthday. Unfortunately, the first picture not to arrive undamaged.

Not me! The glass was smashed when the new owner received it. I sent it to the commissioning buyer, and it arrived safely, but the damage occurred when she sent it on. Luckily the picture was undamaged.

North Lodge, Brockenhurst Park

This Grade ll listed gatehouse was designed by Alfred Waterhouse (1830-1905) and built in the 1860s by T H Wyatt. It is described as being of asymmetrical composition in a French Renaissance style.

This building often appears on the internet in photographs but this may be the first drawing, albeit a tad stylised.
