Stephen Collett of Bootle, Liverpool has exhibited his impressionistic paintings across the globe. Having painted from the age of 5 it was clear he was destined for a career in the arts!

His work is mainly influenced by the French impressionists, finding Cezanne’s techniques and practises most fascinating, being centuries before his time. Whistler, Rothko, Van Gogh and Da Vinci also inspire him.

He says ‘My work is typically oil on canvas and I am currently inspired by cityscapes. I pride myself on painting light rather than form and as a consequence my work has taken on a very impressionistic form which is very effective when scaled down or viewed at a short distance. ‘

He has worked on projects with many business and charities such as the TUC, NSPCC and the NHS. Collett has also worked with the Walker Art gallery hosting Master classes in conjunction with the John Moore’s painting competition.
As well as several public art projects and artist in residence schemes, Stephen Collett has recently had solo shows in Liverpool, London, Berlin and New York, and is currently planning for future shows touring globally.
