A native New Zealander now living in Alaska, Stephen Lawrie began painting at a young age and paints stunning portraits and landscapes. With a lifelong obsession with the natural world, the  landscapes and lighting he captures are so close to real life, they often look like a well-timed photograph. Lawrie, a commercial fisherman and avid outdoorsman, creates landscapes on canvas with an attention to detail that is a testament to his love of wild places and characteristic of his style. 

At our Sea Pony Farm property, Steve worked on a painting a day, and branched out to paint subjects he normally wouldn’t – such as the buildings around the property, and unique subjects like the cast iron cooking stove, and Eric’s handmade driftwood bench.
