Stephen Holland was born in Bryn Mawr, Pa. He began drawing and painting at the age of seven and has as he says "right brained it" his entire life. He is a graduate of Winthrop High School and was a recipient of the United Nations Art Award. Stephen went on to study at New England School of Art becoming a Dean's List Student. Summers were spent between Prout's Neck painting the Maine Coast and Cape Cod doing pastel portraits on the street where he "paid his dues" and was compelled to observe and draw quickly and accurately.
On completion of his studies, he worked as an Illustrator for a packaging firm and became Creative Director at the age of 25. After 12 years in the business, Stephen moved on to freelancing and teaching.
Stephen has won numerous awards throughout the region and exhibits in the New England area. He is also a member of the Copley Society and the New England Watercolor Society. He is a permanent exhibitor and featured artist at the Dickinson gallery. He now concentrates on more personal work, painting for himself with no deadlines. Stephen has been a successful illustrator and teacher for over 35 years and now sells to a growing clientele.
