Stephen Hawkins was born in Surrey in 1964. 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 medium.
Since moving to Sussex around 20 years ago, Stephen has concentrated on landscapes, mainly of the South Downs and Sussex. These capture the subtle changes of light and shade, throughout the seasons. The inclusion of sheep, cattle and horses in many of his landscapes helps to convey truthfully the peaceful atmosphere of modern day Downland life.
His paintings have been exhibited at the Royal Society of Equestrian Artists and at various exhibitions around England. Stephen’s work is now highly collectable and sells regularly from galleries across the UK and USA.
