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.
Steven has been painting professionally for over 10 years and during this time has become experienced in using many different mediums. He spends a lot of time on the coast, walking the North Norfolk and Cornish coastlines as well as the Derbyshire countryside where he lives.
"I am aiming to provide an illusion of space and tranquillity by painting open skies and landscapes. I find pastels and acrylics give me the subtlety and depth I need to achieve this." Steve
