Stewart Beckett

This is me during my heat on Sky Landscape Artist of the Year, Viking Bay (Kent). Naturally introverted I have to push myself to show my work and take risks. I love seeing reactions to my work, and take great pride when a painting finds a new happy home. I live in Hampshire UK, and have a professional studio at the Arches Southampton.
