My name is Stephen Lursen, and I’m an artist, instructor, husband and father. I received my Masters of Fine Art in Painting from Winthrop University in May of 2012. Before that I graduated with my B.A. in Painting from UNC Charlotte. I’ve filmed and produced 15 instructional online workshops, taught countless local art classes and private lessons to all ages, instructed multiple weekend workshops at Donna Downey Studios in Huntersville, NC, and regularly produce new original work for commission and sale. It is my goal to build an amazing art and educational brand where people from around the world will come to both purchase art and learn how to better express themselves through visual arts.
