Carl Stoveland grew up in New York near the Catskill Mountains and found his passion for photography while hiking along the many trails and streams near his home. His father spent his entire career working in photo labs and his mom as an oil painter and watercolorist. Naturally, Stoveland was immersed in fine art his whole life. He says, “While the other neighborhood kids were playing football in the street, my folks sent me to ceramics camp…. Creativity and play have been strongly connected for me ever since.”
Stoveland’s primary medium for many years was photography. About 20 years ago, he started playing with watercolor, and since moving to Florida six years ago, he has been exploring many different mediums including watercolor, gouache, urban sketching with casein, and even a little film making. Stoveland’s current passions include a variety of photo and painting media, along with urban sketching, and teaching.
He has been awarded several artist residencies, including most recently Dry Tortugas National Park. In 2022, he was awarded Best in Show in the Florida Showcase at The Box Gallery. He has also Co-Founded the Lake Worth Beach Urban Sketchers Group and has a podcast called “IAMLAKEWORTH”.
In February, Stoveland will be teaching a two-day urban sketching workshop with the New Studio for the Visual Arts in Jupiter. For information on this class, visit https://www.thenewstudiova.net/. In addition, you can see his work during the “Myth America(na)” exhibition at the Box Gallery of West Palm Beach.
