Stephen Brown
back to artwork

Steven Brown was born in Coleraine in 1963 and from where he works now as an artist and illustrator. Painting and drawing from a very early age, he studied art to ĎAí Level in which he achieved a grade A. He went to work as a graphic artist straight from College for ten years and his work included book, magazine and CD Cover designs.

Continuing to paint and draw in his spare time, he decided to return to his first love and became a freelance artist and illustrator in 1989. Since then he has designed many covers and illustrated books on Irish folklore and mythology, a subject for which he has a great passion, and illustrated numerous short stories for well known publications.
Mainly a figurative painter, he attributes much of his inspiration to late Victorian painters such as the Pre-Raphealites and the book illustrators of that period. He works mainly in pastel, pen and ink, watercolour and acrylic.

He has exhibited mainly in local exhibitions with two solo exhibitions at Flowerfield and The Riverside Theatre and one in La Roch Sur Yon.
His work has been highly praised by the singer Kate Bush for whom he has executed many imaginative paintings and designs inspired by her music.

Art has played an integral part in Stevenís life and will continue to do so.
