Artist of the Week: Bryon Stewart

Seattle might be notorious for niche coffee shops and scenic waterways, but locals know it's also home to an array of people who love to create. This city is chock-full of artists who we love to feature weekly on Seattle Refined! If you have a local artist in mind that you would like to see featured, let us know at And if you're wondering just what constitutes art, that's the beauty of it; it's up to you!

How long have you been creating?
Since childhood, I knew I was an artist.

Do you work with other mediums?
Oil and acrylic mostly.

Can you tell us about your artistic process and how the different stages work into it?
I'm very experimental, so I don't have an established process.

Tell us about where your inspiration for your art comes from?
I find inspiration from all forms of beauty to the spirit world and everything in between.

Do you have a specific "beat" you like best – nature, food, profiles, etc.?
The feminine form and her cosmic responsibility.

Do you have one piece of art that means more to you, or is extremely special to you?
Yes, its Garden; for me, it says what I'm trying to say.

What experiences in your life have affected your art the most?
Moving from the Midwest to the Pacific Northwest at the age of 10.

If we want to see more of your work, where should we go to find it?
ONYX Gallery at Pacific Place in Seattle is a great place to see my new work and my website

What is next for you? Anything you're working on right now that you're really excited about?
The current conditions are taking a toll on the art world, so I'm hoping for a return to normal.

Lastly, how do you take your coffee? (We ask everyone!)
Lots of cream and sugar.
