Steve Weed

Steve Weed has honed a brilliant method of capturing a subject’s essence by combining subtle and bold brush strokes with an expressive color palette. A master in oils, watercolor, and charcoal, Steve’s work receives praise from collectors and fans worldwide. Art is a universal language, and Steve’s work easily communicates with the experiences and emotions of the viewer; or relays to them an unfamiliar experience they can then also feel for themselves.

He works full time from his home studio in Colorado Springs. He is best known for his expressive portraiture and the ability to capture the beautiful nuance of human form and expression, but does not shy away at all from expertly tackling any subject matter. What he creates from that confidence and talent keeps him regularly commissioned on any number of projects across the country. His work hangs in high profile private, corporate, and institutional collections worldwide.

Steve completed his B.F.A. in Texas, under Charles Field, before studying further in Italy. He has also studied with Jeremy Lipking, whom he considers an inspiration. He owned a gallery and sold work in historic La Valleta and the Texas hill country before returning to the mountains and making his home in Colorado. His fan base continues to grow.

He has been voted a Reader’s Choice favorite in the artist category by The Independent, and in the Gazette’s “Best of” Artist category. He’s been interviewed by ABC and CBS, featured on Denver’s Mile High Living, Comcast’s Rocky Mountain Views, featured in Colorado Springs Style magazine.
