Steven Felmore is a versatile, multi-disciplined illustrator who employs traditional and
digital media using Illustrator, Photoshop and Cinema4D on the Macintosh to produce
illustrations of great detail, in fact he believes that “It’s all in the detail” – For more on this topic, please see: “Philosophy”.
Apart from the challenge of architectural, technical and medical work, he enjoys illustrating with a
humorous tongue-in-cheek approach. His illustrations have won a variety of awards including Clio,
Loerie Technical, Spada and Black Eagle trophies.
He is available as Illustrator, Finished Artist and Project Management as Freelance or Full Time
Employment. Download his C.V. here: Curriculum Vitae
Due to a demanding illustration career Steven’s exhibits have been remarkably few, but those he has had have been highly acclaimed. His Remote Interiors exhibition on the living fabric of nature’s rocks won critical acclaim from the renowned late art critic and historian Sir Kenneth Clarke who wrote:
“I have never seen anything quite like your work before … not derivative … original”. Art critic Eldred Green wrote: “Gems of texture, balance and colour … he certainly has something to say.”
For the past 10 years Steven has returned to oil painting, as his preferred medium of expression.
He is currently at work on the Fynbos Suite., a series of oil paintings depicting the sensitivity
and fragility of nature in one of the most delicate micro-eco systems, the Fynbos Biome in
the Southern Cape of South Africa. These are not intended to be viewed as Botanical illustrations but as a subjective record (See “Philosophy”) of his personal experience of the Fynbos.
As part of this experience was musical, Steven commissioned renowned composer and classical
guitarist Avril Kinsey (www.avrilkinsey.net) through the SAMRO Music Foundation, to compose the Fynbos Suite musical score. The work is written for classical guitar, soprano, tenor and SATB choir and has since added to Ms Kinsey’s portfolio of works for her doctoral degree in music.
Since hearing the music Steven has been inspired to continue creating paintings in this genre.
