About David Webster
I am a member of The Society of Graphic Fine Art – the drawing society – and The Society of Architectural Illustraters. All my drawings are very detailed and colourful.
My building portraits are in private collections in America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Hungary, Poland, Ireland and Malta as well as here in the UK. They are also on permanent exhibition in the cardiac consulting rooms of the world-renowned Harefield Heart Hospital in the UK.
I have always admired buildings, their shapes and individual characters; how they change with perspective light and shadow. Whilst my building portraits capture the character and feel of the subject and scene, my style also gives the architecture a slightly quirky treatment but contrasted with some cartoon like quality.
My children’s book illustrations are very detailed and authentic with plenty of humour built in. My aim is to have a lot to look at in my drawings as the pages turn and the story unfolds. The four “Mary D” adventure books that I have illustrated are published by Really Good Books in St.Teath, North Cornwall. They are “The Mary D and The Whale” published in 2013, “The Mary D and the Puffins” 2014, “The Mary D and the Dolphins” 2017 and “The Mary D and the Turtle” 2019.
My work is listed in the gallery section of the site. Many of the images there are available as prints & cards.
