Proud to be born a 'Sandancer' on Tyneside, Steve moved to Devon in 1975 where he currently lives and works. Steve's images are loose and painterly in execution and he constantly utilises new styles and techniques to keep his work fresh. A self taught artist, he has a background in graphic design which has given him a unique understanding of the relationship between colour and emotion. Although aware of scale and perspective Steve prefers to produce a pleasing image and uses his locations purely for inspiration and as a reference point. His work captures the essence and feeling of a place and often disregards the natural order of things. "Harbours and seascapes feature heavily in my work but, like all artists I find inspiration in many places. I've always lived by the coast, my hobbies include kayaking and bodyboarding. Beaches and harbours have been a part of everyday life. I have a real fondness for Cornwall, Penwith in particular. I know it's a cliche but the light really is something else."

In 2012 while visiting a gallery in Mousehole Steve met Judy Joel and was delighted to be invited to join ABNA, The Association of British Naive Artists. In 2014 he began being represented by DeMontfort Fine Art and found his work hanging in beautiful galleries nationwide at the same time building a strong following of collectors both at home and abroad. 2018: Finalist in Devon Life 'Landscape artist of the year'.
