Stephen Kimball is a Louisiana plein air painter educated at Louisiana State University, Louisiana College, Utah State University and University of Utah. He primarily works in oil, acrylic, pen & ink, charcoal and pencil. Kimball also received private instruction from Earl Jones, A.D. Shaw, Charles Sovek, and George Strickland (past president of Plein Air Painters of America), all prominent plein air painters.
About his artwork Kimball says, "I knew early in my life that I wanted to become an artist. My mother was instrumental in teaching me what she knew about drawing, always encouraging me. My philosophy of life and art remains constant in simplicity, in truth and in work. My ethic is rooted in the discipline of painting; wherethere and only there upon the canvas can my visions become reality.
Kimball's work has been shown in numerous exhibits at museums and galleries such as, McKissick Museum of Art, Alexandria Museum of Art, Gallery Square (Texas), River Oaks Art Center and many more. Kimball remarks that, "My roots are deep here in the southland of Louisiana. I love these trees, the vines, the gentle winds that pass through the dreamscapes of my mind and then my work."
