Stephen Dozois

Born in Ontario, Canada in 1969, Stephen moved with his family to Vancouver, BC in 1978, then onto Calgary, Alberta in 1984 where he now resides. Stephen was educated at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, and has worked as a professional artist since 1994 as a painter, muralist, and fine art instructor.

His art draws on both contemporary and traditional styles, with a special focus on western Canadian themes.

Part of Stephen’s growth as an artist has come from his travels throughout Canada, the US and Europe. Having resided in various regions of Canada, he is inspired by diverse landscapes, including the western prairies, grasslands and foothills, Canadian Rockies, Pacific Coast, and rugged terrain of Eastern Canada. Stephen has been influenced by many Canadian Artists, and has an appreciation of the works of the Group of Seven. Stephen enjoys working primarily in oils, but also works in other mediums, including acrylics and watercolors.

Stephen is also a fine art instructor, teaching in a variety of mediums, for over 20 years. He has taught private and semi-private classes, and as ‘Artist in Residence’ at many Calgary schools.
