Firstly, thank you very much for visiting my new stevewoodhamsart.com website. I am Steve Woodhams, I was born in 1971 and I am a self taught artist, living in the Black Country in central England, with my partner Jackie.
Most of my working life was spent as an Operations Manager, based predominantly in the lighting sector. I have always had a deep love of art but have never received any formal art training. Despite this, I decided to take the plunge in to cubism, or at least my take on cubism. I quickly developed a style that I enjoy and that thankfully, other people enjoy too.
I am now fortunate enough to have had some of my work on the walls of some prestigious venues, such as RBSA Gallery in Birmingham, The New Art Gallery Walsall and The Granary Gallery at Weston Park.
On the whole, my art looks complicated upon first glance and it is assumed that meticulous planning goes into each composition. However, in reality the opposite is true. I try not to dwell or over-think the process, or what I am about to do next. Instead, I prefer to let the work flow and almost let my sub-conscious control the pen, pencil or brush. Hopefully then, when viewing my work, it allows the eye to travel across the canvas comfortably and with a degree of logical ease.
I guess my art style is ‘of our time’. With the recent uncertainty in the world and the unprecedented situation we have found ourselves in, my art often, but not always, reflects the day-to-day issues that we are all currently facing.
Well, I would like to thank you again for visiting stevewoodhamsart.com, and I sincerely hope that you enjoy my art. If you have any questions or would like to know more about my art, then please feel free to drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Take care and keep safe!
