The Mini Series of Building Portraits. K. Southee. 2019



MBA's are unique tributes to the character and memory of a place, using my special blend of vibrant colour and elegant line work.

Alas, I won't reveal my 'special blend' ingredients I'm afraid!

What I will share is a love of buildings and their meaning to those that treasure them.

Is your favourite place a holiday house in the hills? Your childhood home in a foreign country where you wish you could visit? Or the home you are currently living in, renovating, restoring, taking care of? Or a shining civic building that you admire?


I have been honoured to paint and draw Memorable Building Artworks for many years.

The first commission - an old Queenslander home in Mackay, North QLD, for my former high school maths teacher and his wife - when I was at university studying to become an interior designer and refining my drawing and observation skills of buildings both inside and out. It was a real honour.

I am passionate about honouring places large and small, grand and humble, as paintings and as drawings that tell stories to remind us where we come from and where we are now.
