Acrylic, Mixed Media, Copper
Taking art classes in school was a beginning for Stephen, including achieving a major art award at the young age of 14, but he did not immerse himself into his career as a painter until the mid-90’s after becoming inspired by the work of renowned American subliminal artist Jim Warren. He came to know Warren in Clearwater, Florida where he watched him paint daily for several months, and then struck out to find his own way.
Stephen was twice given the distinction as one of the top 50 floral painters in the world by the Susan Kathleen Black Foundation, where his work was exhibited in galleries and museums across the United States. He also was also chosen to exhibit at Redwood Media Group’s world-renowned ArtExpo New York in April of 2017.
Stephen has been awarded Best of Show honors, including the St. James Court in Louisville, KY, the Paseo Art Show and Festival of the Arts show in Oklahoma City, Inc 500’s Fine Art Show in Dallas, and in shows throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Illinois, Kansas, Nebraska, Louisiana and Tennessee.
