My training as an historic buildings architect has fostered an inquisitiveness about the stories buildings, and places encapsulate in the very fabric we see every day.

Our built environment is a mine of information about cultural drivers and change. It is a repository of evidence including destruction and the deliberate wiping away of the past. It is continuously undergoing loss and erosion of not only the physical but also of meaning.

But the evidence is there, waiting to be exposed and re-interpreted.

My current works are centred around a visit to Venice during the recent appaling floods where I sketched in my wellies, as the floodwaters ebbed and flowed over the priceless fabric of that magical city.

  1. The artist’s subject matter is of urgent importance as Venice has become a touchstone of the environmental problems we need to address today. The sensitive use of colour and delicate, evanescent drawing of reflections evoke the fragility of the built environment. Well done!
