Artist, Stephen Craven has always enjoyed the incredible beauty of the outdoors and it’s ever changing seasons. He spends as much time as possible gathering sketches for new paintings while enjoying his other passions, fly fishing and hiking.
Admiring and studying the Old Masters and the Hudson River Artists, has given Stephen a greater depth in how he approaches his artwork. His paintings provoke viewers to step into the scenes, feeling the crispness of the air, and the cold icy lakes and streams, losing oneself in the beauty of our National Parks and our local mountains, lakes, streams and occasionally wildlife.
People love to examine his paintings at close range, finding hidden treasures that otherwise meld into the intense detail.
