My name's Dona Bradley and I'm just crazy about drawing buildings!
I trained as a spatial designer and worked for an interior design team for 4 years so my creative background is definitely in buildings and our experiences relating to them.
When my contract ended there was little design work around and I was lucky enough to get a great advisor at the Job Centre who suggested I consider setting up my own business. It was all a bit daunting and I definitely didn't get it right the first time but I'm so pleased I took the plunge now as I love what I do.
Using my architectural drawing and graphic design skills I offer a range of image styles using local landmarks, holiday destinations or your own home to produce unique prints, gifts and homewares.

Taking the building and location as inspiration and using photography as source material my work is a combination of hand-drawing, digital colour and collage.
I have found some great UK companies to work with to help me produce my cards, prints and homewares and I'm adding to my range all the time.
I do take commissions where current work allows and would be happy to discuss creating bespoke product ranges for you too.
For trade enquiries do please get in touch either by email or using the contact form on my website.
Thanks for your interest in my work
