Douglas Smith Biography

A picture of Douglas Smith painted by Bryan Organ

Portrait by: Bryan Organ

Douglas studied painting, sculpture and pottery before completing his first degree in architecture at Cheltenham School of Art.

His second degree was attained at the Leicester School of Architecture, now De Montfort University, where he also completed a post graduate course in Landscape Architecture.

He founded and directed Douglas Smith Stimson Partnership Limited (DSSP) that was based in Leicester, a multi disciplinary practice of architects, landscape architects and interior designers.

Douglas now concentrates on painting and sketching. Fascinated by light and colour, seeing through the eyes of an architect with a visual and spacial awareness, he brings to his paintings a sense of place. His watercolours are in collections of Europe, America and Canada.
