The inspiration for my paintings comes from a variety of sources. I am strongly influenced by the places where I have lived and visited. Emotional experiences and events in my life have also inspired my subject matter.

I aim to convey a strong sense of colour, light, atmosphere and mood through my work.



Alex Steele-Mortimer’s paintings exude a calm sensuality – but one delivered with a great strength and a fearless sense of colour. Fortunate for me, every corner of my home features work from this marvellous painter. Consistently, visitors – men and woman alike – delight in a feeling of “well-being” when in their midst.
