STEVE ZAZENSKI AWS

.

.







A full time artist since 1978, Steve is known for his exciting and colorful landscapes, ranging from coastal New England to Europe and the Caribbean.

Steve paints in both transparent watercolor and gouache, an opaque watercolor, depending on the subject at hand.

An intense feeling of light is apparent in all his work, as well as a strong sense of design. " I use the natural and man made objects I see as design elements that combine to form interesting combinations of light and mass."

A signature member of the American Watercolor Society, and longtime member of the New Jersey Watercolor Society, Steve has won numerous awards for his work.

​They include awards from the NJWS, Salmagundi club, Garden State Watercolor Society, American artists Professional League, Washington Square Outdoor Art Show, Rittenhouse Sq. Outdoor Exhibit, Rockport Art Assn, and many local and regional art shows.
