Stephen has been working as an artist in the Burnley area for the last 24 years.
He works in a variety of materials these days but started his career using coloured pencils back in 1989. "I never felt confident enough to us a brush at that time but later realized this was more about myself than skill".
He worked alongside Derwent Pencils for 23 years as a demonstrator exploring all there new materials and developments, creating images that would later define his style.
He now works from a joint artists cooperative 'Art & Soul' in Padiham, Lancashire and enjoys passing on these experiences and techniques to others via weekly workshops and classes.
His work is continually developing and although he has a passion for portraits, he is currently exploring different subject matter and new techniques.
