A designer and illustrator with a reputation for original hand lettering, and a particular interest in linocut printmaking, environmental lettering and mixed media artwork. Notable public work includes the Walking Words panels at Chatham Place in Reading, the Forbury Square stone in Reading, village signs for Twyford and Hurst. In November 2021 Two Rivers Press published my version of The Happy Prince by Oscar Wilde, which I hand lettered and illustrated. Youtube: The Happy Prince – excerpt read by David Tanqueray

Experimental lettering and paintings are regularly exhibited in galleries and exhibitions. I have designed covers and or illustrated over forty books for Two Rivers Press and my designs are used on merchandise for Reading Museum. I continually experiment with colour and develop sketch book ideas.
