Stephen J Rothwell, Ottawa Member Since July 2018 Artist Statement Stephen J Rothwell is a professional Watercolour Artist from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and has spent the last 33 years developing his unique, self-taught style. His Summer home and studio is located on the shore of Newboro Lake, Ontario, which is one of the lakes along the Rideau Canal Waterway, a designated World Heritage Site. Here he finds inspiration for so many of his watercolours. He is especially well known for his ability to capture the light and reflective water scenes. In the Winter, he retreats to historic Jekyll Island, Georgia where there is a thriving arts community centered around The Goodyear Cottage Gallery. Stephen also draws inspiration for his work from photos he has taken during international travels.
