Steve Thompson

Steve Thompson is a local artist working from his garden studio in Stainburn on the outskirts of Harrogate. He creates dynamic abstracts inspired by the rich language of dramatic landscapes.

"My work reflects feelings about places, their marks, patterns, shapes and colours. Mostly a process of trial and error often played out on the surface of whatever I am working on at the time. Sometimes the process takes on its own path. This can be a frustrating way to work but it leaves room for happy accidents to occur. Having spent my working life controlled and regulated by the Financial services industry I find painting to be the most challenging, fulfilling, emotional and spiritually significant activity in my life now".
