Steven Lingham

Steven was born and raised in the North of England, but now resides in Texas, USA.

His passion for birds is evident as the majority his portfolio contains the subject, from passerines to raptors, game birds to tropical.

Since moving to the USA, Steven's personal discovery of 'new' environments and species has increased his passion and is planning to portray these subjects in forthcoming work but will very much continue to paint his beloved native species.

Initially, Steven was inspired by contemporary realist wildlife artists, it wasn't until later in life and maturity as an artist that Steven discovered and gained much respect for the greats such as Millais, Vermeer, Caravaggio and Joseph Wright of Derby, all of which have given Steven direction and a subtle suggestion of style to his work.

He has used a variety of painting media - acrylics, gouache and the occasional pencil drawing, but has finally settled upon oils, which allow him to attain vibrancy in colour and texture. Steven is renowned for the meticulous attention to detail in his paintings, and although can be very labour intensive his work is still rich with light, atmosphere and beauty.

Steven had his work selected for inclusion in the prestigious Birds in Art exhibition and tour for 2010 at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wisconsin, USA, which is arguably the World's most highly regarded bird art exhibition.
