Membership is by invitation. After two successful entries for the Open Exhibition, membership is offered at the committee’s discretion.
Stephen originally studied at the West Sussex College of Design and has a background in graphic design and illustration, working as an Art Director for design consultancies and advertising agencies in the UK and overseas.
His paintings reflect aspects of his training and experience, showing a keen eye for graphic content, surface texture and detail, all tied to a strong use of colour.
My next exhibition will be a solo show at Cornerstone Arts Centre, Didcot. It has a title of ‘Facing the horizon’ and will feature four portraits at the far end of the gallery facing a series of paintings and sketches observing light, mood and horizons along the River Thames through the seasons where I live and work. This is planned for late October this year but the ongoing Covid-19 may call for a postponement.
Stephen has been a Member since 2005 and has served on the OAS Committee and managed the website for seven years.
Stephen is happy to accept commissions.
