Stephen COLE

Born in Wales, raised in Ontario, Canada, and now relocated to the Chateau de Saint Germain des Pres, France.  Although Graphic Design is his career he has never stopped painting. Creating art is his way of expressing thoughts and experiences. He travels the world and brings back inspiration from wherever he goes. He likes to create a sense of dimension and depth to his paintings, inviting the viewer to enter and explore. His choice of acrylic medium allows him to explore different techniques from soft washes to harsh brush strokes. His paintings are built like a stage, starting from the background and working up to the main players in the scene. He constantly strives to improve his technique while exploring a range of subjects.

"Painting is a life long pursuit that doesn’t have a conclusion only new
paths to explore."


Friend of the chateau and internationally acclaimed ceramicist Claude AUSSAGE organized much of the 2023 Exposition. His works are currently on display at the Centre Culturel JP Fabrègue in St-Yrieix-la-Perche.
