Kentish Belle painting

London artist and musician, Steve Wyse now lives in Ramsgate on the east Kent coast. His first railway artworks were painted in oils but when he discovered the Apple-Mac computer in the early 90's the brushes and paints were sidelined to make way for a new sleek 30Mhz Macintosh.
Steve is a professional graphic designer who has produced a wealth of print and web material for companies as diverse as Pepsi, Disney and Sky BSB plus designs over 70 DVD and CD covers for artists both great and small.
