I have been a commercial illustrator for 30+ years, and I prefer to work with customers who commission me to draw or paint something that is important to them.
I apply traditional mixed media techniques using oil paints, acrylics, watercolors, dyes, gauche and torn paper. My personal style is impressionistic and expressionistic, utilizing loose, wet and dry paint techniques. I also enjoy experimenting with a drawing mix of charcoal and graphite. I am currently experimenting with combinations of traditional and digital painting processes. The advantage is that I can print each piece in multiple high quality, numbered, giclee prints on canvas or paper. This substantially reduces the cost to the buyer.
Let me know what you are thinking and I will be happy to work with you. I would love to be considered your ‘go-to’ artist.

Steven Lester Art and Illustration samples

  1. 1. I have been a commercial illustrator for 30+ years, and I prefer to work with customers who commission me to draw or paint something that is important to them. My first work out of college was a pen and ink series for Sports Illustrated. That was followed by a season of Gameday Magazine cover painting for Georgia Tech football. Sports have always been my first passion. I have done SEC football paint- ings for Alumni, Pro football and baseball, but I have also painted landscapes, lake homes, children and, even 1950’s photos. My own personal style is historically impressionistic and often expressionistic, utilizing loose, wet in wet and dry paint techniques. I typically apply traditional mixed media techniques using oil paints, acrylics, watercolors, dyes, gauche and torn paper. I also enjoy draw- ing with a mix of charcoal, graphite and watercolor. I love to exper- iment and discover happy accidents. Recently I have been utiliz- ing combinations of traditional and digital painting processes. This allows me to produce multiple, high quality, giclee prints on canvas or paper, substantially increasing avilability and reducing price. I work primarily on custom projects by request. Museum quality, signed giclee prints are in the $150-300 range. Original paintings are between $1000 and $2500, depending on complexity and subject matter. Please let me know if you are interested in a commissioned piece. I would love to be considered your ‘go-to’ artist.
