The result is a stunning book that all Londoners and visitors to their city will want to own - w in a unique large format edition. This book features full color sketches of London's most famous scenes. It is a great gift book. It presents extraordinary production values. It includes over 40 sketches reproduced in vivid color on top grade art paper with descriptive text.
Karen Neale qualified as an architect, and now works as a full-time working artist. In 2001 she was awarded a prestigious Churchill fellowship, which allowed her to travel from London to Nepal, through Europe, Iran, Uzbekistan and India, sketching her journey. In 2004 she was appointed artist-in-residence at the Athenaeum club in London. In the following year she had a similar appointment at Lord's cricket ground, during which time she sketched a number of scenes for Stephen Fay's book Tom Graveney At Lord's (Methuen, 2005).
