His one-of-a-kind dolls appear to have just stepped out of a children’s book, monster movie or fairy tale and are impossibly lovable.

Featured Artist Stephen Twite of Lime Creek Art

Stephen Twite Lime Creek 2015-08-29.smFor Stephen Twite, painting had been a fascination for years. He decided it was time to bring his dream to life and begin painting while in Munich on a business trip, in 1999. Most of Stephen’s paintings are bright and whimsical.  His process is to start with the background, not having any idea what is going on top, and to identify a main character or focal point after the mood, surroundings and ambiance have been created. Primary influences are Miro, Calder, Picasso, Klimt and Klee, but inspiration comes from everywhere.
