Steven Quiller

Stephen Quiller is an internationally known painter who works primarily in water media, monotypes, and intaglio printmaking. He is best known for his innovative approach to water media painting: watercolor, gouche, acrylic, casein and their combinations, and for his use of color. He has written six books, all published by Watson-Guptill.

His research and development of a color wheel for painters called the “Quiller Wheel” is now used by thousands of painters throughout the world. In addition, he has developed twelve instructional video tapes produced by Crystal Productions, as well as two tapes produced by the Richeson Company.

Stephen Quiller has painted in many parts of the world, but is primarily known for his work done at or near his home in the high mountainous country of southern Colorado.  These subjects include beaver ponds, snow shadows, water patterns, wild iris, and mountain rhythms, capturing the spirit of the San Juans. 

Through his painting, he has become a Signature member of the American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, Rocky Mountain National Water Media, and Society for Painters in Acrylic and Casein, among others.  In 1997, he received the Greathouse medal and cash award in the 130th American Watercolor Society exhibition.

Stephen's paintings have been on the covers and the subject of articles in many leading art magazines. He has also been an invited juror for a number of regional and national art exhibitions.

A popular workshop instructor, he teaches his approach to color, water media, composition, and on-location painting, throughout North America and internationally, including British Columbia.
