Here’s the 27 Exhibition artwork at the Harland Café, and more about Steve Goodison by the portrait artist himself…
My name is Steve Goodison, I am born and bred in Sheffield.
I have always had a keen interest in art from a young age, especially drawing.
After leaving school and drifting for a couple of years, I eventually ended up in a college course doing Graphic Design. From there I had a few years working for an Advertising agency, but have spent the last 10 to 15 years in the print industry.
My love for drawing started again about 3 years ago when I decided to do a family portrait as a present for my parents. From then I have created numerous pictures which has led to displaying my work in several venues around Sheffield.
In September 2010 at the Botanical Gardens, I was honoured to win the Art in the Garden’s portrait competition for my picture of comedian Toby Foster. You can read about it in Sheffield Telegraph.
Since I was a lad, I’ve watched snooker at the World Championships in the Sheffield Crucible. In 2011, I crafted pencil portraits of each of the only six players to ever score a maximum 147 break at the venue.
As I’ve been fascinated by the sport my whole life. I’ve always thought anyone who makes a 147 is incredibly gifted so this was my tribute to the players. You can see these six pencil drawings in this report by The Star.
I have also produced many commissioned portraits.
