Steven Shipp: Artist and Crafter

Chard, Somerset

Steven Shipp lives in Chard, Somerset. His studio is a wooden summer house in the garden. He has had numerous exhibitions of his paintings in Somerset, Devon and Wiltshire.

Steven's paintings cover seaside culture, folklore, astronomy, theatre and occupied landscapes. His work has been described as having the "essence of Englishness" running through it.

More recently, Steven is creating handmade wooden mirrors. Inspired by nature, he shapes and paints each one either with a scene or as an individual bird, animal or plant.
