Gallery (click to view)
Doug has travelled extensively painting and drawing in the tradition of the travelling artist, believing that the process of painting and drawing gives a intimate insight into a place, and a unique access to people, his own work combines this passion of line and colour and his numerous portfolios have formed a series of major collections. His work in research, design, logistics and construction in both architecture and marine design is extensive in both vision and concept.
Collections and Exhibitions
Doug’s work is represented in numerous private collections. His last solo exhibition was at The National Theatre, London in 2010. He is currently preparing for a major exhibition of his 20 Sacred Places journeys in 2016.
