About the Artist
A Fine Artist in Charleston SC
Stephen’s interest in art began at an early age. In high school he was introduced to the art of illustration.
He then attended the Rochester Institute of Technology where he majored in art and design. After leaving school he worked in the advertising and publication industry for a number of years.
A bright future as an illustrator unfolded. Much of his work has been published in books and magazines around the world. His career has been strongly influenced by artists such as Maxfield Parrish, NC Wyeth and Norman Rockwell.
These great illustrators opened the door into a world of incredible beauty and vivid images that still inspire him to this day. Paintings of wildlife, people, still life and humorous insights all convey a message, an inspiration or a giggle.
His love for nature and its creatures, both real and imagined, is vividly shown in his varied portfolio.
