Tudors at the Tower

Just finished this commission. Another Historic Royal Palaces event at the Tower of London, this time the theme is the coronation of Anne Boleyn in 1533. It is happening on the 23rd - 26th of July and is promising to be another fantastic event. More images to follow shortly.

Tudors on Tour

A really exciting commission for Historic Royal Palaces to illustrate the map for one of their major events. It took place at Tatton Park in Cheshire in early May and was based on the Royal court of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon whilst on one of their extravagant tours of the country.

Geffrye garden map

I was recently commissioned to draw a complete map of the Geffrye museum gardens. A beautiful little patch in the middle of London, well worth a visit.
