Originally from Pennsylvania and now based in Maine, Steven Hileman transitioned from a career as an illustrator into a full time gallery artist.
Hileman paints florals, still life and figureative works, but concentrates primarily on landscape and cityscape. His approach if notable for the manner in which his painterly brush marks work into and reinforce the textural quality of his representation of natural forms.
I particularly enjoy the way he often chooses a restrained palette in his landscapes, allowing his control of value, texture and edge variation move your eye through the composition.
There is an interview with Hileman on The Art Edge.
Be aware that the Archive gallery on his http://stevenhileman.com has multiple pages, accessed from numbered links at the bottom of the page.
