Venice Reflections was awarded “Best Digital Book 2019” by the British Book Design and Production Awards.
In October 2017, I experienced the delights of Venice, sketched and took many reference photographs and then set about the task of trying to recapture that Venetian magic. Twenty nine paintings and twelve months later, Venice Reflections emerged, a very personal record of my interaction with the city. The text is comprised of extracts from the classic Venice by Jan Morris.
