Be prepared to fall in love with at least one painting and possibly several! Stephen's work is unique and so beautiful! He is a joy to work with -- so accommodating. It always brightens my day when I look at my wonderful St. Claire original!

I visited the St. Claire gallery because I loved what I saw online...unfortunately I loved it even more in person but my budget couldn't handle it! I spent a good while just staring in admiration and hope to be back someday to purchase a piece!
