“Although I couldn’t build a big one, I still wanted to support the charity and do something for them, so I decided to do a smaller piece I could auction off myself. The picture didn’t take too long to put together, but there was some very uncommon pieces used. You may be able to see on his legs they’re actually slanted pieces, and in certain colours they’re very difficult to come by. I thoroughly enjoyed building this piece, especially knowing it was going to make money for charity."
Steve has his own workshop based in North Shields from which he works on a range of projects for his numerous clients:
“I used to do landscape photography; I’d often take pictures around the north east of famous buildings and landmarks. When my children were born, I was like any dad and couldn’t wait for them to start playing with Lego. I started by building my house and then moved on to building the Baltic from a photo I had taken previously. They saw my work and asked to display it, this was the beginning of my ‘Lego career’ and after a short while I stopped taking photos and moved solely into Lego art.”
