Steven Brown an internationally recognised Scottish artist well known for his colourful paintings started his career in 2012. His colourful and vivid paintings usually represents animals the most famous one being Harris McCoo.
“Harris has been with us from the beginning. He’s a gorgeous old grand-pappy coo, a twinkly, hard-working gent and head of the McCoo family.”
Steven is actively involved in supporting education programs and bringing art into educational institutions. Recently he launched his books for children and is running art workshops to support young talents so seemed a perfect fit with the vibrant University campus where the bedrooms are situated.
“Having Steven’s works in our guest rooms was a unanimous decision by the team although it was a tough decision on which painting and characters we went for” comments Philippa Davies, Head of Conferencing at Roehampton Venues
In the end the Roehampton Venues team couldn’t decide on just one set of paintings, or in fact two so each room has a different character or scene. The team believe the style is exactly what was needed for our accommodation, modern, contemporary, and lively just like them! Plus it gives guests something to talk about over breakfast the next day.
