Born in 1937 in Bradford, Stevens studied at The Royal College of Art between 1957 and 1960 where his teachers included Ceri Richards. He won the Lloyd Landscape Scholarship and Abbey Minor Travelling Scholarship. Other significant awards included British International Print Biennale (1979) and John Moores Exhibition (1983). Stevens had a one man show at the Mercury Gallery in 1969 and also showed extensively at the Redfern Gallery. His teaching posts included Maidstone and Hornsey. Throughout the 1970’s, Steven’s international reputation grew as he was increasingly admired for his technical ability as a printmaker. His work is in the collections of the Tate, V&A and Arts Council. Steven’s work is typified by the effects of full and dappled sunlight. He died in 1988.
