About the Artist
Having spent most of his early years drawing in pencil and charcoal, Stephen decided to specialise in watercolours. However, like everyone else on the planet, he found it difficult and frustrating. He embarked on a long road of self learning and eventually gained an extensive understanding of the watercolour medium and developed his own unique style.
Stephen soon realised that his early frustrations with watercolours were shared by countless leisure artists all over the country. So much so that he set up as a teacher, runs courses and workshops, demonstrates at art societies and has written his own tuition book entitled – The watercolour enigma.
Stephen has a charismatic presentation style and likes to entertain a little too which keeps everyone on their toes and assists with the learning process. As well as painting live, he uses screen projections, engages the audience and explains precisely how the watercolour medium is unique. His enthusiastic teaching skills will certainly leave you with much to think about and provide many fresh ideas that you will want to try out yourselves.
