Steven began painting professionally, initially working commercially for publishers and clients. A self taught artist Steven works primarily in oils, developing the paintings on location, and finishing the pieces back at his studio. The British coastline and countryside have been Steven's inspiration for many years taking him from the east coast of Norfolk, Derbyshire were he lives and down to Cornwall.
"I try to capture the mood of a scene, often through weather or light and its affects on the surroundings. I like to have a narrative running through some of my paintings, letting the viewer put themselves into the scene."
