Welcome to
Steve Kergin's
Contemporary Symbolic Landscapes

Born in Victoria, B.C., Canada in 1954, Steve Kergin has pursued a career in Illustration and Graphic Design for many years. Educated at the Kootenay School of Art in Nelson, B.C., Steve is now concentrating mainly on his own personal art in Colwood near Victoria where he shares a home-based studio with his wife, Lee (Lowther) Kergin, also a visual artist.

Steve views art as a fundamental form of communication that allows an artist to express a unique inner vision that reflects the experience of many people.

"My work represents an exploration of how, in the 21'st century, contemporary people interact with the natural rhythms of our world. I express my observations through images which appear fairly natural but are actually highly symbolic and stylized in subject matter, colour usage and presentation. My goal is to produce art which is thought provoking and visually stimulating for a wide audience."

"Through these images I hope to communicate my insights and enduring optimism that, collectively, we can find positive solutions to our problems and can rise above our challenges to a higher understanding of our human potential."

"Thanks for visiting. It's gratifying to be able to share my work with you in this way."
