January 2023

Happy New Year to all my clients and friends who have been so supportive in the last twelve months. Last year turned out to be my busiest ever and I’m very grateful to everyone who made that possible. I had some really interesting commissions and a surprising run of work creating lost buildings. In June I made a model of Rockingham Castle as it looked in the 13th Century, in July I reconstructed a large 1930s house recently completely destroyed by fire and in August I was asked to make a lost shop, which had been demolished in the 1970s.

It’s difficult to pinpoint the highlight of the year but the prize may have to go to a commission to build a Victorian terraced house in Balham where the owner asked me to include her child’s wellies on the doorstep! It really is the little things in life which make you happy!!

Any Building Anywhere

Please feel free to get in touch to make an appointment. Remember that it is possible to create models of any type of building, from town house to shop or country house. Without a site visit this makes the ultimate in surprise gifts! This service is not limited to the UK and commissions are welcome from anywhere in the world! Please email me a single photo of your house and I will provide you with an estimate, or give me a call for more information. The usual cost of a house portrait model in a box frame starts at around £2,500+vat.   (more details about ‘small projects’ here).
