A spirit larger sized than life has still left us.
Graeme Stevenson was a exceptional particular person. He had huge creative energies and the resolve to put his tips about art and the globe into motion. We achieved him when he arrived at our studios a single August working day with his assistant, Sophia Stacey, alongside with baggage of filming and lighting equipment. We have been quickly amazed with his kindness and sincere interest in our do the job and our life as artists. Both equally Graeme and Sophia exuded legitimate enthusiasm and friendliness.
We instantly hit it off. Kindred spirits. They produced the job interview and filming approach fun and full of laughter. This was a completely unique variety of interview experience. Specific. A lot more like hanging out with one’s close friends. Ahead of we knew it, they ended up concluded, packed up and ready to go. They have been weary from traveling from Australia and throughout The usa, interviewing artists along the way. It hasn’t often took place in our lives that we have satisfied another person like Graeme. Fast trust. He was that sort of human being. And, he was an completed and nicely-identified easel painter on best of it all!
We requested him why he was burning up so a great deal power and potential portray time to movie and create his Color in Your Lifestyle Television set series. He explained that he was aided along in his job by a person early on, and when he requested that person how he could at any time repay him, he was instructed to “just help other artists like yourself”. So he began to fork out it forward and we and hundreds of other artists who obtained to take part in the software and to know him a tiny, are the beneficiaries of that generosity of spirit. The earth needs additional folks like Graeme Stevenson. He is missed.
