Stephen is a true landscape artist/painter who lives and works on the West coast of Northern Ireland.  He is a painter with immense character, energy and unique expression.  His workshops will be memorable, free flowing and creative. 

He often works outdoors in nature and loves to work at speed to capture the views in the ever changing light and challenging weather conditions of the west Atlantic.

“I used to curse the way I would ‘loose’ a painting due to the changing weather but now I am able to capture it and celebrate the rich diversity that makes these islands such a rewarding environment to work in”.

What to expect from the course 

Steve will get you to trust your artistic instincts, inspire you to create your own free and exciting expressions of the Pembrokeshire Landscape. He will teach you colour mixing to realise your own unique vision.   

  • You will have the opportunity to get close and experience the professional creative process of a landscape artist to give you confidence in shaping your own creative processes

  • Learn the "art" of colour mixing with pastel & watercolour and experiment to realise your own creative vision.  

  • Steve will guide you and set you free to explore your own expressiveness and evolve your own style through representational landscapes

  • Expect to create a volume of work, that is guttural, in the moment and freely captures your subjective view and a sense of place, in the inspiring landscapes of Pembrokeshire.
