“"I wanted landscape painting to be my career destination, since it has held my fascination from the beginning. My emphasis is in capturing the solitude and simple majesty in the landscape. I don’t want to over-romanticize the subject matter. There’s a line you can cross to sentimentality or schmaltz and I try to not go that route.” –Stephen Bach

Raised in Orlando, Stephen attended the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, majoring in painting and illustration.

In 1999, after a career in commercial design and illustration, he began painting landscapes in oil. His works have been shown at leading art festivals throughout the U.S. including the Original Ann Arbor Street Fair, the St Louis Art Fair, the Cherry Creek Arts Festival in Denver, Chicago Old Town Art Fair, and the Sausalito Festival of the Arts.
