A Brush of Colour exhibition – Zan Stevenson

21st August 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1st September 2018 @ 5:00 pm

A new exhibition of paintings by local artist Zan Stevenson



Zan’s latest work, which is being shown at the DC1, includes a collection of paintings called ‘Creation’, depicting various views of nature.

We live in a busy materialistic world, often completely unaware of the beauty on our doorstep. The ever changing colours often seen daily are missed by the passerby. The camera alters the whole composition and feel; exaggerating the foreground and flattening the distant hills or mountains.

Zan like’s to depict this scenery, usually hundreds of years old, but sometimes developed by man.

We need time to ‘stand and stare’.   Time to relax and appreciate the God-given beauty around us. This exhibition will provide such an opportunity.

Zan’s wide range of pictures includes local scenery as well as the more distant ones experienced on her travels.


Following a career as a freelance architect, I studied under Paul Millichip and Geoffrey Vivis (then head of Amersham Art School); following which I successfully completed the 4 year OCA Painting Course.

I am still travelling at every opportunity and am very keen to depict the differing scenes, places and atmospheres found on our travels, both in this country and abroad.

My greatest preoccupation is that of the use of colour, which I see in everything – hundreds of varying shades of which we may be unaware – It is the varying shades and subtleties that exist in both bright and muted colours, which we see in varying lights, that I use in my own particular style to describe the atmosphere of a particular place.  I specialise in oils and acrylics on canvas.
