Steve Ellenburg Art

I started as a musician in the clubs of Southern California.  As time passed, the music changed to college and then to IT business programming. Ultimately, I was challenged by a work associate to pursue art and fulfill the need to create.  I returned to creative endeavors, specifically, that of fine art portraits. 

Since then, I have progressed through graphite, watercolors, pastels an eventually settled on acrylics.   Acrylics have the vibrancy for strong pieces and outstanding contrast.  But they can be soft and smooth for skin tones.  Eyes are the captivating element in portraits, facial features,  and the ability to create skin tones in acrylics was what ultimately convinced me to settle on acrylic portraits.

Some of my lifetime influences from MC Escher, Fabian Perez, Maxfield Parrish, JD Hillberry, Aldo Luongo, and Henry Asencio. Creating celebrities as they are captivating, personal portraits, and the female form all have their passionate creative expressions that compel me to paint.  You can also drive downtown, Placerville CA, and see outdoor mural on the historic Placerville Hardware store.
