About the Artist, Stephen
Stephen Moody is an
Artist, Entrepreneur, Master Photographer and fashion designer. He specializes
in one of a kind Fine Art Painted Portraits. ”Creating Portrait Art is what I
love to do.
Every individual has a unique personality and I love to create that
impression on canvas” says Moody. ”Portrait art is more than oils on canvas.
Its about creating a lasting impression of the individual(s) that make a
statement about my subject to be passed down from this generation to the next
“I had my first art show
in Scottsdale in 2003. It was so successful I took it as a sign I should stay.
So, I moved here……….I love it here” says Stephen.
In 2007 Stephen’s art
show was attended by an account executive from Stuart Weitzman who told him he
loved his work and he should put it on silk and create wearable art. Forty-Five days later Stephen’s Italian Silk
Ties were being made in Italy. Today his
wearable art line has grown to include sandals, clothing and accessories all
hand made in London, England.
At the age of 13 his
mother took him to Paris - a trip that would change his life forever. “We went
to the Jeu de Paume Museum and I walked up the stairs, made a U-turn and walked
into a little room where I was surrounded by works by Vincent VanGogh. I spent
over an hour mesmerized by the beautiful colors swirling on canvases. I fell in
love with impressionism at that moment and it is one of the major influences in
my art today” says Stephen.
Stephen’s career started
in Salt Lake City creating sensual portraits of women for the one’s they loved.
He was featured nationally on TV and print. It didn’t take long for his clients to ask him to create artistic portraits of their children. Stephen moved his studio to NYC in 1991 where he opened a commercial photography studio shooting advertisements and catalogs for corporations.
Stephen is the father of
3 children and has 4 grandchildren. His empty nest consists of a St Bernard, a
Rottweiler and 2 cats all of which are rescues.
Passion for beauty and elegance that stimulates the senses.
The blending of color, movement and vibration into the abstract of consciousness for the soul to feel what the eyes see.
