Artist Steve Moppert
For more than 40 years, Steve Moppert has successfully balanced an active career as a portrait artist with one as a painter of landscapes, still lifes, and figurative works. Always holding himself to the highest standards, both in the polishing of his skills and production of his work, he has consistently attained distinction in the mastery of his art.
While attending the Art Students League of New York, he was under the tutelage of Everett Raymond Kinstler, John Sanden, and Richard Seyffert. In 1984 Moppert traveled to Spain for an in-depth study of the works of the turn-of-the-century master Joaquin Sorolla.
Moppert believes that an artist should always challenge himself to grow and experience the fun of change. Working under that philosophy, in the early 1990s he studied at the Art Students League of Denver with nationally acclaimed artist, Quang Ho. While in Colorado, he was accepted into two workshops with Richard Schmid, the 2001 winner of the Gold Medal Award given by the portrait Society of America. In the summer of 2001, Moppert completed an intensive landscape painting workshop with Scott Christensen.
Moppert, the recipient of the National Portrait Society's prestigious grand prize award in 1981, has recieved recognition for his work in other venues including national periodicals and newspapers. He has been featured in Colorado Homes and Lifestyles and The Mississippi Magazine, and in 2000 his portrait work was featured in the International Artist Magazine. He has been represented by galleries from New York to Arizona.
Portrait prices start at $13,000.
