Steve lives in rural Aberdeenshire but grew up in Wales and has travelled widely. From an early age he wanted to study the natural world and this led to a degree in ecology and he now works at The Centre For Ecology and Hydrology at Aberdeen University.
Steve has never lost his passion for art and says “I paint to capture the light and essence of landscapes. I work mostly in water colour because I love its luminosity, immediacy and unpredictability. My work builds on direct observation in the field but I also draw heavily on memories, feelings and emotional response to the natural world.”
