About Walt Stevenson

Walt Stevenson
About the artist
Walt Stevenson
Walt works with dyes on silk, water color, pen and ink, and tempera. He applies the bright colors that echo the freshness of nature. He and his wife spend their summers in South Lake Tahoe taking in the beautiful scenery, fascinating local artifacts, and breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe and its mountain terrain. These views give him inspiration to paint.

Studying under David Foster for over 10 years, Walt began his water coloring, embracing the vibrancy and rhythms of nature when Foster took his students out en plein air. Walt was delighted to join Foster on his Parisian art tour and workshop in 1995. Walt also studies under Addie Chernus, a brilliant Tahoe silk painting artist. In his scarves, he applies Shibori and batik dying techniques. Walt is known for his spontaneous expressionistic style with its happy, colorful forms and emotions.
Walt’s works have been exhibited at the Poe Rava Gem Company and the Black Pearl Gallery, the Tahoe Art League’s Artist Studio Tour, the TAL Showcase Gallery and the TAL Art Center in South Lake Tahoe, and in the El Dorado Arts Council’s Art Space gallery in Placerville, California, and at previous Tahoe Art League’s Artists Studio Tours. He is part of the Tahoe Art League’s Art Around Town, showing at the Meyers Downtown Café in Meyers, California near South Lake Tahoe.
About Walt’s jewelry: often using imaginative heirloom costume jewelry pieces, he assembles designs with color combination, shape differentiation, and texture variance. He likes to incorporate natural materials, such as stone, shell, sea glass, silk fabric, wire and flora into the finished pieces.
A note about Shibori technique: Shibori is an ancient (8th century) Japanese art form of transforming fabrics into wearable art; the fabric is manipulated by folding, crumpling, stitching, plucking and twisting the cloth, then binding and knotting and securing it.
A note about batik technique: Batik has its origins in Indonesia. A sequence of wax and dye is applied to fabric, and then the dried wax is cracked to let dye penetrate unprotected areas, creating exciting original designs and vibrant color combinations.
