Fletcher studied Commercial Art, Advertising and Design and Later attended Munson, Williams, Proctor Art Institute for fine arts. At Munson Williams Proctor he learned technique and color theory. After attending taught classes for several years he went on to explore independent studies. Fletcher delved deep into the design, color, and theory of such artists as Rembrandt, Hopper, Frederick Church, Thomas Cole, Salvador Dali and many more, subsequently refining his own visual and conceptual vocabulary of style, contrast, color, and sense of place and time.
Fletcher’s work has won several awards and can be found in numerous exhibitions and a myriad of public places and private art collections both in the United States and abroad. He currently lives and creates his paintings in Forestport, New York.
Stephen’s full-color, original artwork illuminates the pages of ‘Wilderness Song’. A rollicking and uplifting tale, in which you will experience the wonders of the wilderness - mountain vistas, the sound of wind in the branches, the rush of brooks over stones. Also the beating of human hearts filled with joy, wonder, and love. ‘Wilderness Song’ takes you deeply into the Adirondack wilderness, and into the lives of one adventurous family - the Snowbirds.
