Steve Henderson - Biography

 

A lifetime fine artist, Steve Henderson pursued a successful career in illustration before turning to fine art fulltime. His paintings are sold and displayed nationwide through exhibitions, shows, and galleries.

 

About his art, Steve says: "I look for, and paint, beauty, as a counteracting effect of our media-saturated fascination with ugliness. Yes, the world is a brutal place, but it is also our home. There is peace, serenity, quietude, thoughtfulness, majesty, grace, joy, and hope in this home of ours -- and that is what I paint."

 

Contemporary realist Jack Beal landed upon Steve's website and wrote Steve, “I have just become aware of your work, and I am fascinated. The humanism and colors of your pictures are wonderful.” His thoughts mirror that of collectors, viewers, and gallery owners, many of whom comment on Steve's free, yet controlled, use of color and brushtroke movement.
