Following a successful career in London as a commercial artist and illustrator, the dramatic scenery of Scotland lured Steve northwards. Much of his work is the result of time spent in forests, hills, mountains and at the coast absorbing the atmosphere, capturing fleeting moments of light or interpreting the glimpse of an elusive animal. Read more in the biography. Steve’s studio is based in rural Fife.
About the art
Work is often completed outside ‘en plein air’ otherwise sketches and photographs form the basis of paintings concluded later in the studio. He uses mainly watercolour, oils and acrylic but charcoal, collage or print may feature alone or in mixed media – whatever he feels most appropriate for the subject. The work is often representational, although this may include elements that are semi-abstract in nature to introduce fresh and unexpected elements into his pieces. Originals, prints, cards and monoprints are available direct from the artist or through galleries. Steve also accepts commissions. To view the work please CLICK HERE.
