Hello There

My Latest Work

28th June 2016: This is my latest piece of large artwork which is for Northway Primary School in Liverpool. It is 3m x 3m and one of the largest pieces of artwork I have created for a school, so it was a challenge in terms of the size and space needed…..but great fun to do.  Thanks to Sarah R for organising the visit and workshops.  It is now hanging in the school corridor near the entrance.

May 2016: This is a 2m x 2m piece of collaborative artwork for Waterloo Primary in Blackpool. It was designed to go in an archway in their main hall. Thanks to the Deputy Head Cara V for organising the talks and workshops. A super bunch of staff and pupils.

April 2016: This is the second large piece of artwork for Farne Primary in Newcastle, which is 2m wide for their outdoor entrance area.

1st April 2016:  Here’s a 2m x 2m piece of collaborative artwork I created with Farne Primary School in Newcastle……such creative staff and pupils! A really great school! Thanks to the Headteacher Lee G for organising everything.

March 2016:  Here are 3 pieces of artwork for Brabin’s Endowed Primary School near Preston in North England.  Thanks to the pupils for all their hard work and great artwork….and thanks also to the Headteacher Rachel for organising the collaborative workshops. 

MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Best Wishes from Stephen :-) x

Today I am actually drawing next years Calendar already!! 

Thank you to the wonderful team at Divine Chocolate! 

Hi, here are a couple of quotes from recent school visits:Debbie Midwood Deputy Head at Seaton Academy in West Cumbria:‘I keep looking at their drawings and thinking how well the children did and for some of them it’s the most confident free flowing line drawings they have ever done!’

Rose Hall at The Glebe Primary School in Stockton-On-Tees:‘The children are still talking about your visit and I have seen work ongoing around school while classes work to finish the stories using the artwork they created with you. There has been quite a buzz! The staff have also said that they would never have considered using children’s own artwork in this way as a starting point for creative writing. They feel that it has been such an exciting opportunity for boys to give them much more freedom of choice in how to begin a piece of creative writing. Of course, this is one of our areas that we are hoping to improve on and your visit has certainly given us a way forward.’Once again Stephen, many thanks for all your hard work. We would certainly recommend you to other schools.
