Open Studios + Triple Prize Draw
This year (2021) I'm giving away three framed original paintings, as part of a campaign to share my art with more people.
The prize draws will take place during studio events throughout the year. These events will be online live video link-ups, where I will show you round the exhibition space in my Cornish studio. The online link ups will form part of real open studio happenings. I'd love to see you there on these occasions!
Studio information is further down this page.
Celebrating a Forty Year Love Affair With The Ancient Land of Cornwall (U.K.)
If you're familiar with this ancient land of Cornwall, UK., you'll be aware that it is steeped not only in history, but also in pre-history. Neolithic stone circles abound, alongside prehistoric settlements and burial chambers, etc. There is a feeling of long forgotten culture, real people and their activity. And all this next to far more recent history -that of the world-famous Cornish tin mining phenomenon - a mere couple hundred years old in its industrialized form.
This Cornish ethos has gone out to influence mining the world over - including diamonds in S. Africa and gold in America. Thus the transcendent quality of the land and its people has become integrated into even the great American nation.
Hello and Welcome -
"I have been expressing the feel of this land in paint for four decades. There is magic in these hills and the resplendent granite coast. I would love to share it with you, in whatever way suits you best. Don't hesitate to tell me your needs.
I hope you enjoy your visit - and return regularly. The website is updated weekly and I try to keep it interesting and informative; as well as inspirational. A team of dedicated people work in co-operation with me in various ways. But the original paintings and watercolours are all by me. Some might date back decades.
These days I'm really enjoying my Joint Venture Projects. (More about them below.) To keep up to date with news, etc, please sign up for the Membership Club newsletter below. Thank you for visiting."

After four decades dedicated to the pursuit of such excellence, his work now breathes with a sublime sense of transcendence. This website is dedicated to connecting him with art-lovers who wish to go beyond all concepts and enter that 'unspeakable mystery' with him.
Hi Steve – painting arrived safely and is glorious! Couldn’t have hoped for anything better when we started this commission – it’s been a tremendous experience, the results of which will give us many years of pleasure. If it’s not too late I may have to reconsider your offer of taking a second one!
Good morning, my daughter gave me your calendar for Christmas and it truly touches me. Your paintings are how my soul feels🦋 Never has an artists work moved me in such a way. It brings tears to my eyes.. very good ones I hope to one day be able to purchase one of your original paintings. Thank you for you beautiful contribution to this world. You make me smile🦋🦋
I'm now the proud owner of this print! And very exciting, I bought my first original SS oil painting of an estuary from a gallery in St Ives last month. Get so much pleasure looking at it every day.
There will come a time when I can have some of your work and I hope it's sooner rather than later as these are stunning!
Reminds me a little of Turner's mystic Images and would love one of these on my wall - very Beautiful.
Oh my days, these are absolutely stunning, made me speechless actually :)
"To complement the website I send out occasional mailings.
For example, private views of new work not shown here, before it reaches galleries. Or paintings I've discovered in the Aladdin's cave studio, that have been hiding away! Plus offline personal deals on some of the original pieces shown here. (More business is conducted personally like this, than through the website itself.)
Rest assured I never share your email address." - Steve
Joint Venture Projects
"As a way of facilitating a deeper connection with my clients, I've recently begun engaging with new places that others have asked me to visit. Localities in which they personally experience the transcendence of timelessness. It's been such a privileged journey for me to connect with new inspiration in this way. And to connect with the people for whom I do this work. It's given me a whole new sense of purpose and fulfilment as an artist.
The painting illustrated here is an example of such a project. It's one of four I painted - and my clients were totally delighted." - Steve
