Stephen John Owen
Stephen John Owen was born in Caernarfon in 1959 although he now lives and works in Groeslon. He is a self taught artist whose work has been greatly influenced by his upbringing, both in Caernarfon and Church Bay Anglesey. As a child, he spent many a long school summer holiday on the Island at his grandmaother’s home. In later years, as a young man the urban images of Caernarfon were a great influence and are clearly expressed in his art work. He enjoyed art as a subject at school and was influenced and encouraged to paint by his art teacher William Selwyn. Stephen has his own unique style of painting; his passion continues to evolve and develop and he is constantly seeking inspiration from his surroundings. His paintings are well known to many and are included in many personal collections across Wales and further afield in Europe and America. Stephen has been featured on the S4C programmes Y Sioe Gelf and Wedi 7, as well as on Radio Cymru.
