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. 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 try to capture the mood of a scene, often through weather or light and its affects on the surroundings. I like to have a narrative running through some of my paintings, letting the viewer put themselves into the scene."
