Love Of London

Love Of London

I had an opportunity to illustrate my favourite city, London, with this tallented team.

What more could I ask for?


It was a fireplace screen to block drafts. I have painted an English country view (Yorkshire in fact!) with a Laburnum tree on a panel and made a frame around it.


The original Winnie The Pooh with his frinds are hidden away in the NY Public Library - my favourite story from I Never Knew That About New York out in US now.


My 'Kilpeck' joins in the Lockwood Print Group Exhibition presented by the Ochre Print Studio. Venue: Treloar Collage (Mon-Fri 10-28 February 2014)


Chichester Cathedral is one of my favourite architecture with not only its magnificent spire but many treasures inside as the 12C reliefs and a Chagall window.

北の街ダラムへ行く途中に立ち寄ったエスコムの小さな教会から少しずつ始まった巡礼の旅が 「イギリスの小さな教会」という一冊になりました。



その中からどのように50カ所を選んだかは、本から感じ取っていただけることを願っていますが、 紹介しきれなかった教会も徐々に紹介していこうと思います。→ Twitter


6世紀後半から少しずつ変化してきた教会建築。 どの時代でも共通していたのは、建築家や技師たちがそれぞれの好みやユーモアを取り入れて、独自の味をだしてきたこと。



キリスト教伝導のために建てられ始めた教会堂も、時代背景や流行に影響を受けながら少しずつ変化していきました。どの時代でも共通していたのは、 建築家や技師たちが自分たちの好みやユーモアを取り入れて、それぞれ独自の味をだしてきたこと。だからイギリスの教会は好奇心をそそられるのです。

でもそれにはある程度の財力が必要であったため、 一般的に教会は地元で採れる石で建てられました。だからこそ、古い教会は特に風景に溶け込み、自然と調和しているのです。



土地柄や経済的理由で地元の特徴がみられない教会も中にはありますが、 こうした特徴を一つの目安として訪ね歩く旅も面白いかもしれません。


I studied graphic design at the College of Art, Nihon University, in Tokyo, and after graduating I joined a TV/theatre production company and became a set designer. I have a particular passion for architecture, honed from my early years growing up with my architect father, and so designing different buildings on stage was a dream job for me.

Since moving to the UK my passion for architecture has grown. I have done many drawings of buildings, some for the 'I Never Knew That' book series as well as for my own book 'The Small Churches in Britain', published in Japan.

Being trained as a set designer, I always think of scenes as I draw, and I want people to conjure up their own stories while looking at them. My hope is to achieve that effect in not only my own works but commissions and book illustrations.
