Stephen Hawkins specialises in rural landscapes painted in oils, and is perhaps best known for his softly lit shooting scenes capturing the charm of today’s traditional country life.
Living and working in the South Downs he loves to capture the South Downs scenery, capturing the subtle changes of light and shade, throughout the seasons. The inclusion of sheep, cattle, ho...rses and figures in many of his landscapes help convey truthfully the peaceful atmosphere of the English countryside.
As a child, Stephen combined an enthusiasm for horses with a love of drawing. He soon displayed a natural artistic ability which led him to produce equestrian and countryside paintings using a variety of mediums.
Stephens paintings have been exhibited at the Royal Society of Equestrian Artists and at various exhibitions around the UK. In 2015, Stephen was awarded the SAA’s title of ‘Artist of the Year’, and was featured in ‘Paint’ magazine. Stephen's work is now highly collectable and sells regularly from galleries across the UK and USA.
