Steve was inspired to create Two Worlds One Scotland as he’s a lover of the great outdoors and the idea was the appeal and the draw to Visit Scotland and their year of Coasts and Water. The idea that there are lots to explore and experience above and below the water surface.
Steve Johnson graduated from Newcastle College of Art and Technology and works as an illustrator in the advertising and film industry creating storyboards and animatics in the pre-production of TV commercials for London based clients. He mainly works digitally but has really enjoyed painting sculptures for Wild In Art trails: 2 Elmer elephants for Great North Elmer and a lighthouse for Light The North. He likes seeing the big smiles and great interaction that people of all ages have with the colourful trail sculptures, specially the children. He is also a keen cyclist and works with his partner Sandra, who has relatives in North East Scotland.
