I first started drawing for a living in 1994 by producing five pencil drawings of Rochester for the series ‘Shade of Britain’ and selling them through a small shop called Framecraft in Victoria Street.
I now have many pictures of Rochester in this series and would like to add a few more.
The pictures can be purchased in several formats and if you don’t see what you want then please ask. Pictures can also be purchased from Francis Iles in Rochester High Street.
The city of Rochester sits on the River Medway and is steeped in history and filled with fine architecture. Rochester Castle, with its Norman tower-keep, has suffered much destruction and rebuilding in its long history. This can be seen and read about as you walk round the castle and grounds. Rochester Cathedral is England's second oldest, having been founded in 604AD by Bishop Justus. The High Street has a charm of its own due to the selection of independent shops and restaurants that still survive there. It is also known for its Dickens and Sweeps festivals that bring the city alive with a carnival atmosphere.
