About Stephen

 

Stephen is a Suffolk-based artist with a background in Architecture.  Despite having very low marks in art classes as a college student studying to become an architect (because he tended to paint what he wanted, not what he was asked to paint), he became a well known local artist in Doha when, unbeknownst to him, some early paintings of his were taken to a local gallery and immediately sold.

 

Stephen focuses his art on city skylines to help capture and preserve important places and memories for people.  The places we've lived and visited became a part of who we are, but memory is a fickle thing.  Over time it fades, and people can become lost to us. 

 

 

But art is a way to give permanence to those memories and significant, life-shaping events.  He prefers to capture these moments using acrylic paint on canvas.  Sometimes his skylines are relatively literal and straight forward- capturing important places that mean something for his customers or himself.  Other times they're more abstract to represent the way we experience a place differently depending on our state of mind.

 

Each painting is a story of something, some place, or someone who changed a person and made them who they are today.
