Born in 1970 in Derbyshire, from an early age Steven had a strong interest in painting the world around him. He is a self taught artist, and has been working full-time as a professional artist for most of his adult life. For the first part of his career, Steven exclusively painted commercially for publishers and clients. In recent years, he has made the move to painting the things that inspire him and he is passionate about, the varied British landscape and coastline. Steven has had work exhibited in London, Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Norfolk and the Cotswolds.
