Born June 29th, 1958 in New South Wales, Australia, Graeme began painting and studying animals at a young age, having a tremendous fascination with the world around him. Graeme’s thirst for knowledge and adventure has driven his passions all his life. He has a firm belief that we are not outside the evolutionary process, and this belief comes from a solid practical foundation of studying, drawing, sketching and painting, and living amongst wildlife and in nature on several different continents throughout his adult life.
Graeme has had many one and two-man shows in galleries throughout the world and his work has been sought after by many companies such as The Bradford Exchange, The Hamilton Collection, The Franklin Mint, Impulse Wear, Portal Publication, Plymouth Publications, Leannin Tree Inc., Folio Editions, Imprimatur Publishers, Studio 02, T. F. H. Publications, FX Schmidt Warren Inc., Ravensburger Sunsout Inc., Collector’s Fine Art, Bits and Pieces, Fortune Art Inc, Artvisions, Fineart wholesalers, Wholesalers U.S.A, Second Nature Platinum, Mystic stitch, Grant Sterling, Attic Japan and M.B.I UK.
Graeme is probably best known for creating the award-winning TV show, ‘Colour In Your Life’, which chronicles the techniques and personalities of artists from around the globe to promote creativity and a love of art. The show premiered in 2010, and as of 2020, is in its 21st season.
On Australia Day, Jan 26, 2017, Graeme received the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) “for service to the visual arts.” The award is one of the highest honours an Australian citizen can receive.
Graeme donates his time and talents. In 2003, he raised funds for AIDs, multiple sclerosis research and children’s cancer research in the U.S. for the Ripple Effect Project. Three of the works were collected by former President Bill Clinton. He also established a charitable foundation, ‘Paint Your Life’, in 2013, which used art to brighten the lives of the disadvantaged or physically impaired.
As of 2020, Colour In Your Life is online everywhere in the world, with film crews in Australia, America, and England.

“Art is supposed to be the greatest social commentary in the world – it’s a confrontation – it’s about saying who we are, when we are, and why we are.” – Graeme Stevenson
