Welcome to my April newsletter

It’s set to be a busy month!

April News 2024

Last month something very strange and unexpected happened. I have had an Instagram account for a number of years and it is an invaluable tool for sharing new projects and images, and catching up with the activities of fellow makers, artists and friends, and of course it’s great for finding out what people’s cats are up to.

A few weeks ago, I must have just made the right post at the right time, because I suddenly noticed a surge in the responses and likes I was getting. The gods of the algorithm seem to have smiled on me and this week I hit 30K followers.

I just want to say, to everyone who has taken the time to follow, like and comment on my work, a huge thank you! Seeing so many people interested in the models I make is wonderful, and I am very very grateful for all this interaction. In a way, it has changed how I think about posting new images now, as I know that they are being seen by more than a few friends and supporters, so I’m having to up my game. This has happily brought a lot more visitors to my website, and if this is the first page you are reading as a new visitor, you may like to have some quick answers to the common themes people have recently messaged me about.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions:

Yes, all of my models are one-off, bespoke creations. House portraits for clients who commission me to make them.

Yes, I can work from photos, so it’s possible to build a model of any building from any location around the world.

I’m based in South London and sometimes I can build the model without a site visit, simply working from photos, but I prefer to visit, as the results will be more accurate that way.

The way to start the process is to email me with a picture of your home, or the building you have in mind. Tell me the location of the house, and I’ll give you an estimate for the project.

Yes, there are lots of options to discuss, so please see the rest of the website for more details.
