Steve
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
I am a Welsh professional practician of Art. Originally born in England my family moved to Wales when I was three years old. I studied an Honours Degree in Fine Art at the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff where I achieved a 2:2.
I am experienced with Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Casting, Paper Craft, Lace Craft, Weave Craft, Engraving, and I am currently on an Advance Photoshop course.

The subject matters I am fascinated with are; Texture, Colour and Form. The artist which represents my interests the most is Vincent Van Gogh in his later and more colourful period of his painting life.

I also like monster concepts in media. As a result I enjoy playing Pokemon and Monster Hunter and watching films with monsters.

At this moment I am using birds as a vessel for my artwork. I think the reason why I like them is the texture of the feathers, the sharp pointedness of the beak, the torpedo-like shape of their bodies and the intrigue of knowing that they are descendants of biped Dinosaurs. I find it thrilling to look at a bird and recognise dinosaur-like features.

Ironically the animals I like the most are cats, red pandas and the weasel family.
Interests
I've been working for over two year on a website. It's been an interesting development. I had to hunt down a domain name and then sort out hosting (which took a long time). I finally sorted out hosting last year. Since then I had been messing around with themes. I wanted to find a good theme to begin with (before building the pages and gallery) so I wouldn't have to change the theme at a later date (and threaten all the fine tuning I had done). In the last week, I finally settled on a preferred theme and yesterday I put up my gallery.

It was quite a bit of work designing a watermark for my images. I wasn't expecting how much hassle it would be. But I prevailed and now I have a website with a good url address, that looks clean and has 69 of the best images of my work all with watermarks. I wasn't expecting how much trouble it would be (someone originally had promised to help me build it; he didn't). But here we are. I have a website where I can post details about any competitions or galleries I'll be part of and any new work.
