A Norfolk artist is debuting his first solo exhibition which features drawings of iconic images from some local towns.


Designer Simon Warner, from Whittington, near Stoke Ferry, is showing his collection at a gallery in Hanse House, King’s Lynn.

Some of his drawings on display include the ‘Colours of Swaffham’ and iconic images of the South Quay, Minster and Purfleet fishermen.

Mr Warner, 39 said of his designs: “It’s two separate styles - life drawing and cartoon architecture. Listening to other people’s conversations on the bus, seeing people going about everyday - I take it all in. It all inspires me.

“I have always been into art and hope that my exhibitions take off so I can do this full time - I would love the freedom to do my own thing.”

During the day, Mr Warner is a graphic designer for a company in Hackney Wick, London.

He studied art and the College of West Anglia and then went on to the Norwich School of Art and Design to study graphic design.

Mr Warner said that some of his characters in his cartoon drawings are based on real-life people: “Nate is has elements of me in and Ellie is a mixture of some ex-girlfriends.”

Mr Warner’s exhibition in open Monday to Saturday 10am-4pm and 11am-4pm on Sundays. The exhibition closes 4pm, Sunday June 8.
