About the Artist
Steve Worthington worked in London after graduating art school, and made frequent visits to museums and galleries to study the figure and draw from sculpture. That provided the foundation for a 20-year, globe-spanning career as an advertising artist, often required to draw any given situation from any angle without reference, under very tight deadlines. After all of that, sculpting came quite naturally. He is a member of the National Sculpture Society; the Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers Society; and the Society of Animal Artists. His work can be found in galleries and exhibitions coast to coast.
What artist inspires you? Why?
Frank Brangwyn, because his work speaks volumes while he doesn't (and didn't even back when he was alive). He did say 'There is no philosophy of art other than the doing well of a given job for a given purpose'. A masterfully understated genius if ever there was one.
How do you come up with an idea for a new piece of artwork?
Usually when I'm working on something, seemingly better ideas often pop into my head, but then of course, you still have to finish the thing you're working on!
Where is the most inspirational place you've visited lately?
