Colorado Springs artist Steve Weed was raised under the dramatic skies of
Oklahoma City, San Antonio, and the New Mexico mountains, and was
influenced by their visual impact. By the age of 18 he knew he wanted to make
his mark in life as an image maker; to permanently create and capture the unique
beauty of any given moment in time. His dedication and skills were rewarded as
a student when he won Young Talent in Oklahoma, then headed to Texas,
earning his B.F.A. in painting from The University of Texas at San Antonio.
A well respected artist, Steve’s subject matter and medium is not limited to any
one genre or theme. A master in oils, watercolor and charcoal, Steve’s clientele
list is comprised of art collectors from around the world. His distinct brush style
and impeccable color palette capture the essence of aesthetic beauty in any
given moment, regardless of subject matter. Beauty is the universal language
and Steve’s work communicates images and memories that relate easily with the
experiences and emotion of the viewer.
Steve made his way into the Colorado history archives when he created the
Ashes to Art project following the devastating 2012 Waldo Canyon Fire that
wiped out his neighborhood, raising the funding for the permanent Waldo Canyon
Fire memorial. Using the ashes left in his yard, he infused them into his paint and
created a collection of 22 fire related pieces that were auctioned off to raise
money for long term healing.
