Stephen is an accomplished artist who has spent the past twenty plus years developing his own unique style of painting. He has experimented with colour and texture in an effort to capture the beauty and spirituality of natural elements.
Stephen’s interest in colour and texture was heightened during his extensive travels throughout Asia and South America where he studied the art and techniques of a variety of cultures. At home in Canada, he continues to be inspired by the harmonious balance and inherent beauty in natural settings. Isolating various elements found in nature and then incorporating their essence into abstract and impressionist compositions, Stephen has created a body of work that transcends language and invokes a sense of wonder. Layers of paint and texture engage the viewer who is invited to bring his own perceptions to the paintings.
“The language of colour is personal. The colour the artist chooses defines him and his work. The possibilities are infinite and the style is defined not only by what is chosen but what is left out. In combination with texture, colour becomes three dimensional, creating a more engaging level of expression”.
Stephen studied at the Ontario College of Art and Wilfrid Laurier University. His work is widely shown and well represented in galleries and corporate collections. Stephen presently works and lives in Cobourg, Ontario and can be reached at 905-377-8277.
