his ingenuity for creative problem solving & visioning.
As a fine art painter, Stuart specializes in urban and
natural landscapes. He depicts relationships in these environments through a
unique style. "Within urban and natural landscapes I see subtle variations in
surfaces and texture creating a silent yet powerful interaction of elements
that create a story. I strive to highlight this story through a dance of
color and composition. I believe this dance creates a subtle, natural
dialogue that slowly evolves for the viewer, giving a deeper perception and
understanding of the environment and message that has been presented through
the painting." His canvases range in size from small studies to large
compositions over 12 feet in dimension. "I feel a viewer's relation and
perception towards composition and subject matter differs depending on the
scale of the artwork which can manipulate the viewer's vantage point and
In a continual
search for nature's subtle differences, Stuart travels to many remote areas of
the United States and Canada. Backpacking with a camera and sketch canvases,
Stuart collects images to be turned into paintings back in his studio. "I

Stacey Morse has been a fine art photographer since 1987 specializing in
large format black and white compositions. "As an artist I feel compelled to seek out
the different and unique visual elements I want to capture." The emphasis of her work
to date is composed of dramatic landscape photographs as well as dynamic images composed
from subject matter and environments one might pass without consideration.
Stacey works with a variety of photographic equipment including 35mm,
4x5, 5x7 and 8x10 view cameras allowing her the opportunity to produce prints as large as
5' x 6'. "I feel that the imagery determines the final prints size and printing
techniques. Some imagery may require a smaller print format or softer printing technique
to bring the viewer into the composition. While other images may require large scale,
exhibition formats giving the viewer the feeling that they could step into the scene,
becoming an integral part of the photographed environment."
The creative drive to explore new environments and collect imagery has
taken Stacey to many areas of the United States and Canada. She travels by means of
backpack and utilizes an old Toyota Land cruiser retrofitted to accommodate a photographic
shooting platform. "I go where my subject demands me to go. If that means climbing a
14,000 foot mountain with a view camera in tow then that's what I'll do. The artwork
should not be sacrificed for lack of ambition."
A Bachelors degree in fine art has enabled Stacey to combine talents in
both drawing and photography exploring the integration of each into her work. Stacey's
photography background includes six years experience working as a commercial photographer
with one of Missouri's largest studios as well as creating photographic art compositions
for a variety of clients. Stacey is co-owner of Morse Fine Art Studios, Inc. which creates
