Welcome to my Studio.
All my life I have been creative in one way or another. When I was young I was heavily into painting and illustration but as life will do to you sometimes these pursuits had to get put aside for a career in the restaurant industry. At least working as a chef in restaurants I was still able to have an outlet for my creativity. But the years went by and I became less a chef and more a owner/manager.
With less of an outlet for being creative I decided to go back to my roots and give my creative soul over to painting. I work in acrylics and different medias, I love a visually stunning landscape and will often take brush to canvas to recreate a memory. My true passion is abstracts. This is where I feel the loosest in my painting and my most creative.
I love to take a wall or room and create something that makes the room pop. The beauty of abstract art is that I never know what I’m going to paint until I actually paint it. I usually have a good idea of the primary colours I will use in the piece, but the rest is usually unknown. It’s purely done in the moment — that’s why I love to paint abstract art. I never force the brush, I let the brush lead the way.
Recently I had a friend open a bistro (The Courtyard Bistro) and wanted art for her walls to give a unique ambieance to her restaurant. I was more than happy to help out, giving my art some public exposure. Thank you again Jocelyn.
Feel free to contact me about any of my art. I would love to be able talk with you about a piece to adorn the walls of your home. Steve Malcolm's email
