Kyoto Garden

Kyoto Garden in Holland Park

London urban sketchers met up in the Design Muesum on Kensington High Street in November. I decided to brave the gloomy weather and sketch out doors in the nearby Holland Park. Kyoto Garden, opened in 1991, was a gift from the city of Kyoto to celebrate the long standing friendship between Japan and Great Britain.

Urban sketching and watercolour is my hobby. I'm a biochemist by training and work for the NHS full time as a healthcare scientist. Most of my free time, outside my day job is devoted to art and urban sketching. I am a self confessed nerd when it comes to watercolour and art materials in general. I approach them with the same curiosity and passion as I do for biochemistry - because after all, colour is science! I travel to sketch and sketch to travel. I'm an active member of Urban Sketchers London - part of a global sketching community which I only discovered in 2017.
