Clay Stephens

For me, art is a journey that began when I was old enough to hold a crayon.

I have studied many aspects of artistic interpretation and love exploring new ideas and techniques with paint and textures!

Clay Stephens

Clay Stephens is a contemporary abstract expressionist painter working primarily in acrylic on canvas and mixed media on paper and canvas.

Clay is experienced in, and has worked in, many media including oil, watercolor, batik, encaustic, acrylics, charcoal, pastel, pottery and sculpture. However, for the past several years he has explored recalled landscapes, Earth formations and impressions from Florida and his travels to other parts of the country and the world.

Executed intuitively with acrylic and metallic paints, and sometimes mixed media on canvas and paper, these works convey a sense of time and place with a feeling of mystery and magic!

Clay’s works have been included in numerous exhibits and juried shows over the years and his paintings are represented in many corporate and private collections
