About me

Stephen Lursen artist headshot

Hi! My name is Stephen Lursen and I am an artist, instructor, husband, father, son, and friend. I received my Masters of Fine Art in Painting from Winthrop University in May of 2012. For the last 3 years I was the Director of Education at Donna Downey Studios in Huntersville, NC and I learned so much from the example of Donna and her husband Bill. While working there I was given the opportunity to design two series of mass produced cling stamps under the Donna Downey Label, I filmed and produced 13 instructional online workshops, taught countless local art classes to all ages, worked side by side with Donna in three wonderful collaborative weekend workshops we called our "Artistry" series, and most recently I was blessed to have the opportunity to teach my first full fledged weekend workshop that not only sold out, but was a HUGE success for everyone involved. Now I have 4 new dates on the calendar to teach weekend workshops at Donna Downey Studios! The first is called "Setting The Mood" from October 14th - 16th. (Click the title link to find out more!)

It is my goal to build an amazing art and educational brand where people from around the world will come to both purchase art and learn how to better express themselves through visual arts.

On my website you will find:

  • Instructional online workshops
  • Fine Art Originals for sale - prices, descriptions, images, etc.
  • Downloadable art PDF files for sale allowing you to print on demand
  • My blog titled: Stephen Lursen Art featuring multiple free tutorials

Artistically and appreciatively Yours,
