About the artist
Stephen Howard Harrison… Stephen Howard Harrison is a painter who trained at Edinburgh College of Art.
‘I often find inspiration for my subject matter in the people and places around Edinburgh where I live and also in the land and seascapes of the East Neuk of Fife which I have grown very fond of over recent years. The light is wonderful there. I enjoy the sense of positivity that painting brings and I aspire to make beautiful paintings that people enjoy having on the wall.
I find it satisfying when I feel I have deepened my colour palette – which I consider to be the vocabulary of the painter. I find great beauty in the natural world around me and seek to communicate this through my paintings.’
