Since retiring from his work in the care sector, Stephen has been developing his lifelong interest in woodwork and the various effects that can be achieved when wood is painted, burnt and carved. His subjects reflect an interest in life in and around the sea – the birds, boats, fish and local architecture.

The materials Stephen uses, on the whole, are recycled or found.

The timber is sourced from beaches, local woodlands in Worcestershire
