Doug originally trained at the Royal College of Art and the Architectural Association. Throughout his career Doug has travelled the world developing design and architecture projects involving complex logistics and a wide variety of concepts; in tandem working as an artist & illustrator. His numerous journeys have become archives and art exhibitions, and his sketchbooks and portfolios are part of major collections in museums and libraries.
Doug’s work in film-set design, architecture and marine projects is extensive both in vision and concept.
Since 2014, he joined forces with Dublanc Studio as “Patterson-Dublanc” for several projects in India and the Caribbean.
