k u .co. mind our y think re #IFeelBetterWhen Steven McLoughlin Steven McLoughlin was born in 1970 and is a self-taught artist. Showing a serious interest in art from the age of 16, Steve initially drew pencil portraits. A flair for fine architectural drawings led Breedon Books to hand Steve his first commission at the age of 19, illustrating a series of street scenes of Old Derby. That eye for detail was also drawing Steve to wildlife subjects and also landscapes. Working in Oils and Mixed Media, Steven starts his work on location, and then finishes the paintings back at his studio. The British coastline and countryside are Steven’s inspiration, taking him from the Peak District and his home in Derbyshire to the East coast of Norfolk and Cornwall.

 “I try to capture the mood of a scene, often through weather or light and its effects on the surroundings. I like to have a narrative running through some of my paintings, letting the viewer put themselves into the scene.” www.stevenmcloughlin.co.uk Art Assessor 102
