Firstly, thank you very much for visiting stevewoodhamsart.com. 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.
Inspiration, to me, can come from pretty much anywhere. It is often a case of, if something moves me emotionally then I will draw or paint it. It could be something I see on the TV or whilst out and about. It could be my frustration at the world we live in and mankind’s apparent lack of respect for the planet or anything else that lives on it. Or, it could come from my own internal struggles with mental health.
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 email@example.com
Take care and keep safe!
