Watkins Artwork was started in 2009 when we relocated to Doha, Qatar, with our daughter. Roll on eight and a half adventurous years, two more daughters and lots of travel, we are now back in the UK.
Due to so much popularity of the work we decided to branch out into prints of the most popular designs. Whilst living in Doha we sold many mounted prints of skylines and camels to the ex-patriot community who were keen to have a reminder of their stay in the Middle East.
We wanted to continue to make the prints available, so have set up this website to enable us to connect with Watkins Artwork followers all over the world.
Our paintings are reproduced as high quality giclee prints on watercolour paper, ready to post anywhere in the world.
Original artwork is also available by commission. Please send us a message with your requests and we can see what we can do to make your vision reality.
Stephen is a Qualified architect with 16 years in the industry spending the last 9 on SIDRA hospital in Doha, Qatar a multibillion dollar project.
Stephen started painting skylines on canvas in 2003 when we were living in Hampshire, UK. A gallery in Southsea, Portsmouth took a few of his original pieces and within a few weeks they were all sold. When we moved to Doha the ever-changing skyline was a great inspiration to Stephen and his work evolved from colourful skylines into arabesque abstract designs with buildings featuring in every one.
Stephen had his first Solo exhibition in January 2016 at The Corridor, Grand Hyatt Hotel, Doha.
