2014 Participating Artist
Steve Stento painted his first watercolor in 1995 and has been enthralled with the medium ever since. Steve’s primary color is to capture scenes of timeless beauty. His current body of work reflects the sights he encountered during a month long trip to Italy and a trip to the south of France. Steve finds the warm, vibrant scenes of life near the Mediterranean to be the perfect inspiration.
“Italy and France are places where art, history, and beauty are so pervasive in daily life that one’s creative soul cannot help but be stirred,” he said.
A native of Virginia, Steve studied drawing and design at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond before settling in Arizona. His work has been featured in The Artist’s Magazine, International Artist magazine, as well as Splash 7 and Splash 8, compilation books of today’s best watercolors.
