Born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, David currently works as a professional Town Planner, which has allowed him to fully appreciate the architectural beauty of the built environment both in the UK and worldwide. David is interested in the urban form, and the movement of life (people, animals and vehicles) within. In developing his drawings David enjoys achieving perspective and including all necessary detail to provide the viewer with an image of real depth.
“My drawings are of iconic images of Newcastle and the north east in general, as well as of other historic British and global cities. I am inspired by diverse built forms and architectural beauty, as well as the street movement within. My drawings are complex seeking to portray different forms of urban life”.
All of David’s drawings have required extremely high levels of concentration, patience and skilfull drawing techniques to ensure that they accurately portray his subject matter.
