Disney Fine Art Stephen Shortridge
Stephen Shortridge“It was probably 1985 when I finally admitted to myself and everyone that I wanted and needed to pursue my art. I had been acting for several years, and although I had been successful, it was never where my heart was. I took my first painting class in college and really never stopped. Painting provides me a constant challenge. It reminds me of golf, in that you can enjoy it or be frustrated by it, but never completely master it. It’s always exciting to see where a painting ends for each has a mind of its own. I tell people, for the most part, I am self-taught…but in truth, I have been taught by everyone and everything.”

Romantic Impressionism is what I do. I think the term best expresses how and why I paint. To me it is bold and full of life and color. Rather than attempting to tell you something completely, it makes an experience that is felt more than told. That is why I set out to interpret life through this style of art; it invites the viewer to create along with me. With impressionism the viewer must participate in the finish of a painting.” Stephen met his wife Cathy on the beach surfing in Newport Beach. They married in 1976 and share an adventurous life; experiencing career changes from modeling and acting to gift stores and art publishing. They’ve made homes in Manhattan, Connecticut, Southern California, and for the last twenty three years, in the mountains of North Idaho. They have four children and four grandkids.
