Daphne Stephenson is considered one of the foremost and prolific Primitive Naive Artists working in Britain today.
She owes much of her inspiration to living abroad for the first 10 years of her life along with her extensive travels. It is her colourful past that unquestionably lends itself to her exquisite and cheerful paintings. She likes to create ‘happy paintings that make people feel good’!
She brings an eclectic mix of different cultures and backgrounds into every area of her work with an air of charm, wit and sophistication.
She has been particularly influenced by her time on Caribbean islands over the last years like the Bahamas, Bermuda, The Seychelles and Jamaica and loves painting lush vegetation, birds of paradise and anything tropical. But Daphne comes back to reality now and then, closer to home in London, with her British and European scenes.
