Steve works and lives in the Northwest of England and was born in Bury in 1973. Steve has always enjoyed drawing and painting from an early age. Although he briefly studied art at Bury College Steve is mainly a self taught artist and is influenced by Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Claude Monet and J.M.H. Turner.
After leaving college Steve's career path moved away from art and headed towards the Insurance industry and for the last 15 years in a management capacity. Whilst working in this role Steve continued to paint portraits and landscapes on a commission basis, preferring the medium of Acrylic.
Steve has recently switched his career back to painting and his recent work captures wildlife in urban environments, exploring the almost human like qualities of animals and in particular penguins, discovering the human world and experiences through their eyes in a fun and colourful way.
