Meet local artist Stefan Dykstra. Stefan works in both abstract concepts and folk-art landscapes. His abstracts are a study in color and form, with underpinnings in science fiction and architecture. His landscapes are influenced by his love of waterside villages from past travels and memories of childhood. Stefan works with acrylic paint on plywood.
Stefan is a 56-year-old professional woodworker who co-owns his business with his wife, Ranny. Originally from the Garden State, he has also lived in Michigan and Seattle. Currently, he resides in the house he designed and built 30 years ago in Warwick. He began his journey as a craftsman in his early years. He experimented with architecture and design through furniture creation and abstract drawings using a rapidograph and pencil on paper. Recently he has expanded his art by delving into color.
Stefan's paintings will be on display in the Board Room throughout the month of November.
