Stephen Coates

Stephen Coates was born in Sheffield in 1960. As the son of a

draughtsman, he was introduced to drawing at a very young age. He

excelled in art at school but chose a career in retail, working first in the

music industry for 16 years followed by another 16 years running his own

catering business.

Stephen decided to return to painting a little later in life and chose to

specialise in watercolours. He gradually developed his own style and

unique brand of teaching. In 2011 he traded his sandwich business for a

career in art.

From his purpose designed studio in Sheffield he runs workshops and hosts his own amateur watercolour groups.

Stephen shares his expertise at art societies all over England where he demonstrates and leads workshops.

He is often seen exhibiting at a variety of national art events such as the "Patchings Art Fest" and the Creative Craft

shows at the NEC . Stephen is also the author of several books which includes "The easy guide to painting skies in

watercolour". He also writes regular articles for Leisure Painter magazine.
