Scribble My Street
I am a landscape architect who loves to draw, capturing my views of urban life on the streets of Manchester where I live, and in any place that I visit, from cafes and cathedrals, to sheds and skyscrapers. I love to explore aspects of the urban environment and the parts of that environment that give it its character and sense of place and I record my scribbles in sketchbooks. My scribbles aim to record my impressions and understanding, in the words of Urban Sketchers ‘One drawing at a time’.
