Carrboro's Mill Town Heritage
Steve Hessler paints representational landscapes in traditional oils on stretched canvas and gessoed panels. Much of his work is painted plein air, although he also paints from photographs in his studio. "As a self-taught artist, what appeals to me about outdoor painting is the opportunity to create quick, uncomplicated images of places about which I have strong feelings." Such places include the historic district of the Carrboro Mill Village, rural Orange County where he lives; and, the North Carolina coast, especially Topsail Island and Core Sound.
