Theo Stephens


“ART alongside filmmaking satisfies my need not only to use my imagination and create but to learn and grow.

It all begins with having enthusiasm from a single thought.

Excitedly, you struggle mentally and emotionally with the inspiration within. Trying to find a way to turn an artistic idea into reality, whether it’s on film, canvas or the potter’s wheel. In my life, I’ve found these forms of expression all empowering.

My enthusiasm for art is hard to translate into a language we know as ‘words’ – my work can best be described as “Abstract Expressionism.” It’s a matter of enjoying the experience of each and every creative moment.” - Theo Stephens
