Steve Zazenski, an award-winning signature member of the American Watercolor Society, has been a full time watercolor and gouache artist since 1978. His landscapes of coastal New England, Europe, and the Caribbean evoke the excitement, light, and color of those locales. Steve says, “I use the natural and man made objects I see as design elements that combine to form interesting combinations of light and mass." His work appeals to a diverse spectrum of art collectors such as Smithsonian Institute, Library of Congress, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, Rupert Holmes, Lech Walesa, and Cokie Roberts.
