Based in Christchurch, Bournemouth, Dorset. Specialising in Contemporary British Art.
After originally working as a musician, Stephen studied History and Art History at University but found painting to be more interesting, first turning to watercolour. Since 2000 he has painted almost entirely in oil and acrylic. Stephen has been a professional artist since 1985 and represented by Hatch Gallery since it opened back in 2012
“I love texture especially when used to evoke the archaic and although I have a reasonably well established route into a painting the actual mark making process of its growth is more intuitive than deliberative, more unconscious than conscious. I find this process of discovery liberating and joyful, evoking a wide and complex range of emotions.”
