John Steven Dews is a maritime artist that was born in Yorkshire in 1949. The continued desirability and critical acclaim that his work achieves places him as one of the most successful living maritime artists in the world.
The Marine Board of New South Wales commissioned from Steven Dews a record of the Australian Bicentennial Celebrations, and in 1994 the New York Yacht Club chose him to record their 150th Birthday Regatta at Newport, R.I. The Royal Yacht Squadron commissioned Dews to paint a record of the 2001 America’s Cup Jubilee Regatta and have repeated this honour for their 200 year celebrations. Steven is well known for his dramatic America’s Cup paintings, and was commissioned to paint all of the America’s Cup regattas Alinghi raced in.
Steven Dews lives and loves the subject he paints. When he is not painting maritime scenes, Steven can be found on the sea himself, as he is a highly experienced yachtsman.
