Stephen Lucas - Artist

"There are in our lives moments of indescribable emotion, words fail us many times, this vision beyond the describable is the realm of non-representational art.”

Alexander Liberman


        It is not my thing to abstract the world around me. My challenge is to capture the “essence of life”, the unseen, without using words or identifiable objects. Because of my creative process, I believe when a person is moved by my paintings, it is a "purely spiritual" experience, a communion, between the viewer and the painting, and on a deeper level, myself.


Being a fine art painter is a rewarding journey. I devote much of each day to my art and advancing my career, but equally important to me is being an inspirational and influential contemporary fine artist. I studied at McCrady Fine Art School in New Orleans, Louisiana; Ventura College School of Fine Art in Ventura, California, and later apprenticed with painter, teacher and theoretician, Wesley E. Johnson. During that time my focus turned to abstraction and it was then that my true artistic vision opened up and took flight.


In 1998, a new dimension was added to my career portfolio when major motion picture studios and national television networks brought my art to film! As well, with hundreds of collectors from around the world, my audience is rapidly growing in an international market.

Everyday we enjoy your artwork in our home.  We have only been able to afford the prints, however we view them as our masterpieces. Our friends and family love them also. Thank you for the beauty you've brought into our home.

My home is filled with Stephen’s art so I'm constantly having beauty to look at. I love all my paintings especially our first that we bought at the marketplace. It was going to be a wedding present for a friend but I could not give it up.
