Bruce Stebner - Head Shot

Born with a passion for art, Bruce Stebner came to painting through a serendipitous turn of events after a three-decade run fulfilling his childhood dream to be a studio potter. Stebner’s art is a personal visual record of a lifetime of romancing the rustic. His art seeks to find meaning and beauty in life’s daily moments and simple pleasures. It’s no wonder that, after being drawn to Impressionist painters like Morisot, he found his real identity in the painter’s world with the French Intimist and Symbolist painters of the twentieth century. The doors, chairs, and stairs of his charming, yet enigmatic interior paintings become more and more ethereal symbols of Life’s opportunities, challenges, and repose.

Whether painted at home or abroad, Stebner’s paintings are prized for their energetic strokes, sense of light, and use of color. Should these images of his art speak to you online, the paintings will delight you all the more in person.
