Paint the Past Archaeological Reconstruction and Illustration Chartered Institute for Archaeologists Paint the Past Archaeological Reconstruction and Illustration
I am dedicated to recreating our rich heritage by means of informed graphical reconstruction of many historical sites that have fallen victim to the progression of time.

Using the combined expertise of consultants and watercolour art style, I portray a reliable and realistic perspective of long lost monuments and structures dating from the earliest stone age settlements to 20th century buildings.

Paint the Past is the expression of my endeavours of the past forty years in archaeological, architectural and historical reconstruction and illustration.

My portfolio has been subdivided into five categories and any of the 280 items can also be selected alphabetically from the adjacent list.
