Steve Griggs

Steve's love of watercolour started in elementary school, when his

mother purchased his first 'real' watercolour set with six tubes of paint.

He later graduated from Michigan State University with a BA in Studio Art

and then attended Art Centre College of Design in Pasadena, California.

Over the years Steve has developed a free and energetic style. He loves

teaching and encouraging others to become freer with their paintings

too. He is always pushing himself to grow and evolve.

"I have always been drawn to watercolour painting; I appreciate the

unique flow of paint, the melting colour, the way light takes shape and

comes alive on the paper. Watercolours are a bit free-spirited. As an

artist, I have had to learn that I will never master the paint, but rather I

will work with it."

Steve is a signature member of the Colorado Watercolour Society and the Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Society.

He is a Watercolour Ambassador for MGraham and Co.

Steve doesn't strive to paint static scenes. Using movement and representation, he paints to nudge the beauty,

lingering within the soul, to life. He paints to evoke memory and feeling and meaning. A single painting might speak a

thousand different stories to a thousand different people.
