Dennis Stevens

Born in a tiny town in Iowa, the son of a sheep shearer and housewife, Dennis graduated from Drake University with a major in art, minor in advertising.


His work is traditional, representational and narrative in nature. Each painting has a story. Some stories are obvious, some are subtle and take time to unearth.
 His hope is that you find your own story in his paintings that will delight you time and time again.

Dennis has held art director/creative director positions at LOOK Magazine, Lennen and Newell Pacific, Needham Harper and Steers, Doyle Dane Bernbach and Young and Rubicam. He has lived in Iowa, Texas, Alaska, Hawaii, Chicago and New York. Dennis has been honored with many painting, advertising, and illustration awards. He lives and works in Cranbury, CT
