Doug originally trained at the Royal College of Art and the Architectural Association. He has always worked as a designer and architect, and his design projects have involved complex logistics and a wide variety of concepts. Throughout his career he has always travelled, developing design projects in various parts of the world, in tandem working as an artist illustrating his numerous journeys which have formed archives and art exhibitions.

Doug’s work through travel identifies with various landscapes and styles of architecture. He has travelled extensively, painting and drawing in the tradition of a travelling artist, believing that the process of painting and drawing gives an intimate insight into a place and a unique access to people. His work combines this passion of line and colour, recording these aspects in his sketch books. His numerous portfolios have formed a series of major collections in museums and libraries. In design, his work in research, design, logistics and construction, in both architecture and marine projects, is extensive in both vision and concept. Throughout the last two years, he has travelled numerous times to India to supervise the prefabrication of his design for a hand carved marble water cascade 75 metres high, which is currently under construction on an island in the West Indies. Travelling has always influenced his design work and drawing and painting.
Collections and Exhibitions
Doug’s work is represented in numerous private collections, including The Royal Geographical Society, The Mount Athos Archive and the St Catherines Foundation. His last major exhibition was at the Royal National Theatre, London, in 2011.
