Paint Annapolis is on the way! Learn more about the juried artists and get yourself ready for this historic Plein air painting festival.
We’re excited to welcome Stephen Haynes from Irwin, Pennsylvania as a juried artist for Paint Annapolis 2022! Stephen Haynes is a self-taught painter currently living in the greater Pittsburgh area.
A lifelong artist, Stephen spent his formative school years among the beaches of southern California, and summers in the mountains of West Virginia. This divided time gave him a diverse outlook and an immense love of the outdoors.
Showing his work publicly for over 20 years, Haynes has tried his hand at most art forms at one time or another. In his current work, the artist uses vibrant oil colors, mixed on the canvas, to convey light, shadow and form through thick impasto brushwork, evoking movement and abstract qualities.
Stephen graduated with an Associates Degree in visual communications from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 2001 and currently lives with his wife, their two children and two dogs in a faded blue house east of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
