STEVE ALPORT
Born in Newport in 1960, art has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. My mother was an art teacher and illustrator, my aunt, a professional artist, my father an Architect and I eventually trained in graphic design. It was in 2000 when I set up my own graphics consultancy in Cardiff that I could seriously combine the two disciplines successfully. As a member of the Pontcanna dog walking fraternity (and fully aware of the devotion between dogs and their owners, and vice-versa), I saw the potential for producing not only traditional, very personal dog portraits, but a less static approach in capturing their vitality at play and having fun in their favourite environment. With my own Labrador, this means constant observation... often quick on-the-spot sketching and maybe some photos to work from later. It is all about freeze-framing that 'moment in time', using loose, deliberate strokes or marks to draw out its particular character and personality. I have undertaken numerous commissions in a variety of mediums and I thoroughly enjoy the challenges this subject matter often provides.
