Elegant, optimistic pictures of people, gardens and cities. New views of Venice and London
Browse limited-edition prints and cards in convivial surroundings. Find your perfect Christmas present, and meet the artist at home!
Make it an afternoon out and discover Deptford’s bustling market and High Street, plentifully sprinkled with independent shops, cafés and bars. We’re five minutes walk from them, and two from New Cross Station, which is just one stop from London Bridge.
I'm an architect-trained freelance artist. Originally from Scotland via Canada, I'm now based in south London.
I use my pictures to tell stories.
I'm inspired by humanity, progress, gardening, Greek vase paintings, and songs about 21st-century angst.
My first book THIS IS BIRMINGHAM: A Glimpse of the City’s Secret Treasures (a history of the18th-century Lunar Society) spent nine months on Waterstone’s Recommended list and was commended by The Guardian. Brummies still buy it as wedding presents, and gifts for friends from abroad. You can buy it here.
