Steve Feltham, AKA VERSE, is an avid painter and lifelong devotee of the arts. Steve moved to Vancouver Island to pursue his formal training at The Victoria College of Art in Victoria, BC, later staying on to also pursue his career as a Chef. When not in the studio Steve can most often be found fly fishing and exploring his beloved West Coast – passions which have become a recurring theme in his artistic pursuits. This appreciation for the Coast has been most visibly represented in his recent work, a collection of paintings executed on West Coast driftwood. As a participant at the Moss Street Paint-In and an annual contributor to the Victoria Ska & Reggae Fest, Steve is enthusiastic about sharing in the vibrant and ever-growing art community in Victoria, continually surrounded by inspiration there among his colleagues, friends and the beautiful city he feels fortunate to call home.
