About The Artist
on the east coast of England, not far from London, Steve Read is a
self taught artist due to obtaining qualifications at 'O' and 'A'
level in non-art related subjects such as Maths, English, Geography,
Physics and Chemistry. He did however obtain 'A' levels in Technical
and Machine drawing. At one point Steve was contemplating further
education at art college but decided against that course of action
as he did not relish the thought of another three years of formal
study and examinations and was keen to make his way in the world of
illustration, this being the field in which he really wanted to work.
Below is a small selection of the work Steve has completed over the years.
