Stephen Millership

Stephen Millership

I grew up in an industrial part of England within walking distance of beautiful countryside, moving to Manchester to study Graphic Design in my teens. Over the years I have worked in graphic design and computer games and became a founding member of a successful computer games company in Cheshire. More recently I have returned to illustration.

My prints have been exhibited in Museums, Hotels and exhibitions around the country. The style of my art draws on the interest I have for the classic travel posters of the 1930’s and the optimism for the future portrayed in many of these vintage works. Subjects I have illustrated stretch from Tudor halls and rolling countryside to the conzrete Brutalism of the 1970’s. I think this wide range is a reflection of growing up with heavy industry and being surrounded by rural Derbyshire. I aim to make the unattractive, attractive, to give a greater appreciation of loved and some not so loved subjects.

Research is the key for me, and I see the illustration process as a journey to a greater understanding of my subject. If I come away from a finished commission knowing more than I did before I started, then I am happy.
