About the Artist      

Stephen was formally trained as a painter and illustrator at Pratt Institute . In 1985 an invitation to paint a mural in a local upstart Italian restaurant led him on a 15 year painting adventure with what became The Olive Garden. He hand painted approximately 1500 murals in 490 restaurants in 47 states.

In 2000 he pursued his long term goal of being a fine art landscape painter. He works in oil on canvas and has become known for capturing the serenity of the landscape while pushing the effects of color and light.
