Recently Steve has been creating window paintings for pop-up gallery spaces. Designs are inspired by traditional textile patterns. They are created by "drawing with tape", sponge painting and removing tape to create see through lines which appear dark or light depending on local light conditions.
Other work are some examples of paintings Steve made during the period he was teaching art, 1993-2000. He was a exhibiting member of Aire Valley artists, Pendle Artists and founder member Colne Artists Studio association. These examples are in private collections.
During this period he was also learning to play saxaphone and was researching the lives of black American musicians from the jazz and blues traditions.
