Jewels Stevens is an artist who creates visually luxurious paintings that are a reflection of her mind's eye. Informed by the sights and sounds of the places she travels to and explores, Stevens is a voyager, not voyeur.
Delving deep into inner realms through meditation, music, dance and ceremony, Stevens also draws inspiration from the wonders of the physical world.
While there is most often and immediate impact in her bold and expressive paintings, as one delves further into the layered brushwork, more detail and nuance unveils. Concerned with colour, composition, and the atmospheric mood of the work, there is a constant flux between more quiet and more chaotic forces.
