I am a residential designer, an illustrator, and an architect of all kinds of traditional buildings, both "real" structures like luxury private homes and imaginary, for games and novels. I also build quite a lot of things, shelves, furniture, cabinets, architectural components, and interior renovations. I am completely self-taught. Unlike the majority of architectural designers now, I rely exclusively on pencil and paper to express a new building design. Virtually all my floor plans, elevations, cross sections, and three-dimensional "perspective" portraits of buildings are hand-drawn. I am also a huge proponent of "traditional" architecture. Those buildings which have stood the test of time are exceedingly beautiful, timelessly enduring, profoundly well-built and highly functional, and they are where my inspirations and construction techniques come from.

I DO accept commissions to design buildings of all forms and types, both fantasy and real, including fantastic houses, spectacular castles, detailed villages, and more, in any historic style of your choice, or, I can invent a new style! I have received a number of commissions from Deviant in the last few months, including real architectural work, website illustrations for a builder, novel illustrations, virtual building designs for games, and a book cover for a novel, and the commission requests continue.

Viewers of my drawings and designs may learn from them, be inspired by them, or use them as a basis for something more involved. I am not possessive and share freely. If you would like to make a 3D model or other artwork based on something in my gallery, feel free, I love seeing how other people interpret what I draw. Just be sure to send me a note during progress or when you are done, and credit me as the designer, that's all!

Also, if you are interested in watercolors, digital art, and drawings of traditional architecture, both existing historic structures and original designs of all kinds, be sure to check out my group, Classic-Architecture!

I just-- I don't even-- how-- wha--

You, sir, are FANTASTIC. That above is not an exaggeration, that was my honest reaction upon stumbling across your artwork. I'm still boggled by it. If you ever put your designs into a book I will buy it a heartbeat. I torn between wishing I was building a house so I could use one of your gorgeous designs and being glad I'm not, because how would I ever choose?

Anyway, enough gushing, I just wanted to say that I love your work and I'm excited to see more from you.

The book project is accelerating and more likely to happen now. Lots of work to do. Thanks!

Yep. That's it. YOU are building my storybook dream house one day in the mountains of North Carolina, where I plan to reside within the next few years. I just accidentally stumbled across your pictures on Pinterest, and have literally been blown away by your work and will accept no other for the task. Thank you for your incredible and inspiring vision. I look forward to working with you in the future! ;)

Sounds great! May I ask where-abouts are you? That's just north of me.

Sadly, I am not currently residing in North Carolina, but my husband and I plan to make it our permanent residence within the next 2-3 years, after he gets better established with his career. We vacationed there last year and got pulled right into the vortex. Right now, we live in South Georgia, and although it's somewhat satisfactory here, we know in our hearts this area is not where we belong. We are absolutely mesmerized by the Asheville area, with those gentle mountains towering above and around the city, and hope to be anywhere in that general area in the not too distant future. We are slowly but surely working on making our dream become our reality. :)

AHHHH very good, you'll be just above me then, we go there all the time. I lived in ATL in the 1990's. South Georgia makes good peanuts, pecans, vidalias, hmmm maybe Athena Cantaloupe, but hot and flat, not for me...Make sure to also check out Greenville, SC, best downtown in the Southeast, waterfall and park, fantastic main street district, "catching up" to Asheville in artistic culture, but much better economy, very strong middle class. Depends on what kind of work you guys are looking for...
