Wilson Stewart

 

Wilson Stewart is a visual artist and Licensed Land Surveyor living on Peaks Island in Portland, Maine. Influenced by his grandmother, a gifted sketch artist, Wilson has drawn on and off again since childhood.

Mainly self-taught, Wilson began painting later in life. His paintings depict a range of scenes across multiple genres, including cityscapes and portraits, and reflect his interpretation of nature and daily life. Working with a variety of mediums his portfolio includes realistic traditional style paintings of people and places, and expressionistic semi-abstract paintings full of vibrant colors and rich tones.

When asked to speak about his career as a fine artist he replied, “My maternal grandmother was quite a sketch artist when she was younger and I guess that rubbed off on me. When I was much younger, and she used to take me on trips, she would give me her old unused sketch books and field paints and watched as I drew. With much patience, and only a little guidance she allowed me to draw and paint what I saw, as I saw it.

While in forestry school at the University of Maine at Orono, my academic schedule allowed for one pure elective course. I chose basic drawing. I remember thinking at the time that I wished I had gone to school for a fine arts degree instead. Life, as it usually does, got a hold of my free time after getting married and while raising two wonderful sons. No regrets! I count that time among the best moments of my life and banked all those experiences in journal sketches, for future artworks.

After my wife’s passing in March of 2018, I moved to the island, permanently, where I have set up my new studio to continue painting and printmaking. I still paint what I see, as I see it. During the summer months, with Portland, ME and Peaks Island, ME as my inspiration, if I’m not sitting on a beach, I am sketching… actually I am usually doing both. In my new studio, I have narrowed my artistic interests to painting with acrylics and monotype printmaking, focusing on landscape and figurative subject matter.”
