Stephen Yorke


Stephen Yorke is a professional artist, writer and illustrator living in the beautiful Cherwell Valley in Oxfordshire.

Aged 11, he won a place at the Moseley School of Art in Birmingham, England, where he studied classical rendering techniques in all aspects of art.

Today he strives to communicate his fascination with light: its ability to change and refashion the same hillside or valley or to sculpture a still life. Whatever the work, his ultimate aim is to capture that illusive time-of-day ambience.

Working in oil, watercolour, oil pastel, graphite and intricate pen and ink, he now divides his style between the traditional and a more contemporary abstract approach. As well as writing and illustrating his series of Crumble Cottage books and merchandise.

Stephen has exhibited in France (where he lived and worked for 7 years), Cyprus, New York and extensively in UK.
