Stephen Taylor studied Fine Art at Leeds University with T.J. Clark and was taught painting by Paul Gopal Choudhury; after which he worked on perception and technique in John Constable as a post graduate at Essex University and visiting student at Yale. He became interested in cognitive studies at this time.
Over the 80’s, after a successful residency at Felsted School in Essex, Stephen turned from art history to painting. He supported himself and developed his skill by working to commission with a wide range of clients and subjects. He also lectured part time in art history and theory, becoming for a while head of painting at The Open College of The Arts, founded by Michael Young.
He is currently working on paintings about seeing water, and developing a method of colour-texture analysis as a tool for helping to see and paint nature afresh. He's also interested in the relationship between nature writing and 'new nature painting'.
Framewerks currently has a number of limited edition prints of Stephen’s Oak Tree series.
Tom Lewis was born in Birmingham in 1979. Leaving his A-Levels to fend for themselves, he left school to study art at college and went on to a Fine Art degree at Middlesex University. Whilst at University Tom had a very strange experience on a train, which sparked the series of events that leads us here.
His work can be described as an attempt to order that which he cannot, to create meaning where there is none and provide narrative to an otherwise story-less situation. Alternatively, for the moment, he likes the phrase ‘beautiful nonsense’.
Framewerks stock a range of Tom’s limited edition prints.

Born in Cornwall in 1972, Matt Mackman is an artist living and working in Essex. After studying at North Essex School of Art he went on to complete his training at Staffordshire University in 1996, specialising in Fine Art Painting and Photography.
Since graduating Matt has taught at various levels including foundation and degree, worked in the film industry and undertaken commissions both private and for the corporate sector. He works from his studio in Earls Colne and exhibits regularly in group and solo shows
Matt works predominantly as a painter although he often uses the camera as a starting point and in turn photographs as part of the sketching process. He is as comfortable producing work that is 6 inches square as he is 6 feet square and takes a mixed media approach to the creative process employing paint, paper and powders to create a rich textured finish.
Framewerks is pleased to offer a range of Matt’s original pieces.
