Stephen Horne

After a career as an editorial cartoonist, illustrator and museum exhibit designer, Stephen Horne has returned to paints and canvas, with an eye to landscapes both here at home and far away on distant coastlines. Working in acrylic and oil, Horne explores these worlds on trails near his home in Paul Smiths, NY, or, traveling, along the roiling seascapes of Nova Scotia and beach dunes of Florida.

“The dense Forest Preserve out my back door forces me to see a landscape of detail, within a few feet, full of the rich greens and browns of the Northern Boreal forest. So, when I travel to the coast—Cape Breton, Ocracoke, NC or Sanibel Island, FL in particular— I am amazed by a world of practically endless horizons, barren of trees, blasted by wind or lit by an entirely different sunlight. I ricochet between the two worlds in my paintings, and am happy for it.”

Stephen Horne is a member of the Oil Painters of America and the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society.
