Born in North Yorkshire in 1963 Sean was influenced to paint in the style of LS Lowry after his father infamously stole one in 1972 depicting St Hilda’s Church and old Town Hall from a public art gallery. When he was arrested by police after the theft, he had a ransom letter with three demands.The first demand was that the gallery should have a better alarm system fitted. Secondly the gallery should to be opened on Sundays, thirdly, the Mayor should raffle his underpants for charity!

“As a boy I awoke in our terrace house, went downstairs and there in front of me on the mantelpiece was a curious little painting depiction what looked to me like a big house, a church, and some matchstick people scurrying around. I didn’t know it at the time, but it was to have a profound effect on my life. It was a painting by L.S Lowry and my father had stolen it from a public art gallery the previous evening. That image and the atmosphere it conveyed is what I find so beguiling and it stayed in my head for many years until finally, as a young man, I built up the courage to paint myself.”

Sean holds regular exhibits in his native north east and has been the subject of numerous BBC TV, Radio and Newspaper articles. He has also been a proud to donate paintings and raise thousands of pounds in support of local and national charities
