Ronnie Cruwys


My fascination with old buildings grew during the 13 years spent working in Staffordshire as conservation architect on the repair of many local listed buildings and churches. I draw on this background, both literally and figuratively, in my street elevations which are intended to stand as a true record of how I see them at present.

I draw freehand in pen and ink and apply colour with egg tempera and natural earth pigments.


I’m a student on Aidan Hart’s Icon Painting Diploma run by the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts, London.
