My name is Stevie Stefano, I am an artist specializing in oil paintings in a traditional realistic style. From Landscapes, Plein-Air, Still Life and Portraiture I take pride in painting my best representation possible.
I have always admired the talents of the old masters from the Renaissance Era in Florence Italy. Artists like Michelangelo, Da Vinci and Caravaggio just to name a few.
I took up painting in 2008 under the direction of two very talented local artists, Novak Plavic a renowned portrait painter and Judy Sherman a master of Renaissance Realism. Under their teachings I began to develop my own style.
Painting serves me a greater purpose. After I was permanently disabled in an accident, leaving me with limited range of motion in my arms, I find painting to be a wonderful escape.
