Paul Vallone, Managing Director, Berkeley Homes (Central London) Ltd:

John has completed a large number of high quality illustrations for us. He has always responded quickly and kept to tight deadlines. He is able to contribute creatively to the briefing process and then to work with minimal design input from his client. His illustrations represent great value for us, in giving us the edge over the competition when presenting schemes to interested third parties, and winning land bids.

We have been working with John for a number of years and his talent and skill have been instrumental in securing comissions for us.
His beautiful watercolours speak for themselves. His soft, flattering style makes buildings look appealing and attractive.
John is able to work with a very sketchy brief and he is extremely good at filling gaps in design using creatively his intuition and his architectural background. John is a man of his word, he always delivers and has never let us down.


John Walsom has completed several stunning illustrations for Harrods in recent months. Each piece has been created to an exceptionally high standard and we have been thoroughly delighted with the efficiency and professionalism John has shown throughout the project. These illustrations are to be used for our Heritage Food Range packaging and will provide an elegant and unique style to the products.
