Steven Townsend is a completely self-taught artist of exceptional talent. Born in 1955 Steven is married with four children and currently resides in Lancashire, England.
Prior to joining Northern Editions in 1993, Steven''s early work revolved around Wildlife and Landscape painting. He subsequently changed direction to his now famous dog pictures that continue to sell out on publication.
After several increasingly successful years, Steven has returned full circle adding African wildlife subjects to his fantastic range of limited editions.
Steven draws inspiration from classical music; his favourites being Mahler and Chopin. He has spent much time studying the works of several timeless, great impressionist painters, particularly enjoying the work of Peder Monsted and Bruno Liljefors.
Steven''s faith has proved to be a cornerstone of his dedication and ability. Many customers are unaware that hidden in each and every picture he produces the initials JTC (Jesus The Creator) appear, affirming his belief.
