Luke Steadman

Luke

 

 

As an Artist I want to reveal the unnoticed adventure underlying the routine of daily life.  Art is the means by which I attempt to awake others to this natural beauty.  My paintings are to be uplifting and a pleasure for the viewer to enjoy.  My work is focused upon the hope that my talent and acquired skills will provide for the viewer an exploration of the character, context, emotions and value that are contained within each painting.

Viewers can seek refuge in the sanctuary of Luke's Art. His work is quiet and contemplative, enveloped in atmosphere and mood. It is the beauty and serenity of nature that is interpreted, as forms of rest and solitude appeal to him, symbolic of quiet and repose.

In 2001, he enrolled at the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida.  Graduating with honors in 2005, he was the recipient of numerous Ringling awards and two national awards from The Artist’s Magazine.

Steadman is a Signature Member of the American Society of Marine Artist. His painting "Moment of Clarity" was selected for the ASMA 15th National Exhibition. 2011 - 2013 "Moment of Clarity" was exhibited in eight Art Museums throughout the Nation.
