original oil paintings.
Hello! My name is Stephen Sensenig and I am an oil painter from Lancaster Pennsylvania. I have been fascinated by art since I can remember, and first started painting with my grandmother when I was eight. I have been painting in the fourteen years since. I started painting with acrylics, but now I am painting with oils. I have been mostly self-taught. I enjoy music, which provides me inspiration for my artwork. I also like to make pottery.
I paint a variety of subjects including portraits, landscapes, and still lifes. I accept portrait commissions. I enjoy the tenebrism of Caravaggio and the Dutch Masters. Some of my favorite artists to draw inspiration from are Rembrandt, Vermeer, Turner, Frederick Church, John Singer Sargent, and Andrew Wyeth.
