Hello, my name is Stephen.
I have graduated in Fine Art having studied at the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff. I live and work in Anglesey, North Wales, taking my inspiration from the wild nature of the area. I have lived on Anglesey for most of my life.
I have also obtained a Merit in Plumbing. I enjoy taking opportunities that will let me learn how to use new materials and tools. I have enjoyed learning how to work with copper and steel and the process of joining. I am glad that I learned and developed these skills as I will be able to apply them to any future artwork.
I took part in a community art project in silk painting. The final outcome of the project was the production of an art installation in the Library of Wales in Aberystwyth on the theme of local identity. I found the medium vastly different from other two-dimensional mediums. The behaviour of the paint was chaotically exciting. It is a new way that physics is applied to art. I thoroughly enjoyed exploring silk painting.
I currently contribute work for sale to Anglesey Good Gifts (I have also worked voluntarily in the shop and cafe). Anglesey Good Gifts is a non-profit Rural Crafts Centre.
I also supply greetings cards to a few outlets in the Anglesey and Gwynedd area.
In July I will be exhibiting artwork in Y Caban in Brynrefail near Llanberis.
