Stephen Ring started his artistic career painting detailed pictures of birds, sold from the iron railings at Hyde Park in London. From there he established two successful art shops before moving to the beautiful county of Devon where his natural artistic talent was ignited.
With his artistic background and passion for being outdoors Stephen has combined determination and hard work to create a unique style. His tireless enthusiasm and desire compels him to combine visual harmony with attraction to re-create the striking, dramatic landscape and the continuously changing coastline.
Stephen's work has enhanced the living and working environments of many establishments and his craft has been used in corporate settings including BAA to P&O, as well as businesses of all sizes, galleries, interior designs and individual sales.
'Oceans in Your Soul' is a striking series of five original paintings exclusively created by Stephen for Cove Gallery.
"These contemporary pieces evoke not only peace and tranquillity but are also dynamic and dramatic, capturing the light, reflections and abstract shapes of the coastline. I have predominantly used the colour blue as the spirit of this colour has beneficial effects to the mind and body and creates a calming and positive atmosphere. The resin paintings that I have created are composed of 3 to 4 layers of resin mixed with vibrant colour to create current works of art that capture the essence and atmosphere of the ocean and transforming living and working spaces."
