ARTIST BIO:

Steve Plews is a multi-dimensional artist, whose practice is mainly photography, assemblage, printmaking and painting. His work reflects memory and time as in found objects, the seasons of nature and natural materials and photos. I never have a clear idea of how the end product will look, to me art is a meditative experience in which my unconscious mind becomes my guide. I am an artist living with a disability, namely a brain injury from an accident. I have been working with Start Me Up in the Work Action Centre in order to build my business as an artist and photographer. There has a been a extended period of time I was not able to work or make art. However as I recover and with the help of these agencies I am productive and creative once again and happy to start to put my training as an artist to good use.
