Steve Says:

"I'm enormously proud of my roll as The Honorary Patron of Shuttleworth and my association with the SVAS.

To be inspired by the dedication of these amazing people, many of whome have become dear friends, is both humbling and reminds of the responsibility I have as an artist, public speaker and Ambassador of Shuttleworth, to capture the story of our Aviation past on canvas to tell the story for future generations .

I hope that all I do for the furthering of education and dedication to charity can inspire the engineers, designers and aviators of the the future.

I hope that my work reflects the dedication of all involved with keeping our rich heritage of alive."

Steve continues to dedicate himself to the cause of preservation of our motoring, Maritime and Aviation heritage for future generations to learn from and enjoy.
