Stephen Ehret

Sausalito, CA

I grew up on the San Francisco peninsula during its rural period. I attended the College of San Mateo and studied under Alanson Appleton and Robert Bowman, then later the California College of Arts and Crafts where I studied under Ralph Borge, Robert Bechtel, Roy De Forest, Arthur Okamura and Jimmy Suzuki. Marin has been my home for the past 45 years and I live and work in Sausalito. My fascination with the way color works in human vision has lead me to develop a technique of using layers of transparent glazes to mix colors optically, allowing light to penetrate the surface and recreate the luminous quality of natural light. My paintings are autobiographical. Time and the flow of emotions over that time are the essential ingredients. The effects of light are metaphors to express the transcendent spirit.
