Biography adapted from material supplied by the artist.

Mac Stevenson is a Utah artist who resides in North Ogden. He is married to the former Ann Brunetti and has six children. He is a graduate of Ben Lomond High School, Ogden, Utah. There he received an art scholarship to attend Weber State University where he received his Bachelors Degree in Art Education in 1968.

After teaching art for one year, Mac attended Brigham Young University where he was awarded a Masters of Fine Arts Degree in painting, drawing and sculpturing. Upon completion of his Masters Degree, Mac pursued his teaching career in the Ogden City School District. He taught art at Mount Ogden Junior High, Ogden High and for twenty-six years at Ben Lomond High School. While teaching at Ben Lomond High School, Mac was chosen by Utah State University in 1994 as the Utah High School Art Teacher of the Year.

During his last twelve years at Ben Lomond High, Mac instructed Advanced Placement Art. For those twelve years Ben Lomond's Advanced Placement Art scores had the highest pass ratio in the school district at 86%.

After seven years of university training and twenty-nine years of teaching art, Mac now directs his energy toward teaching himself. As a practicing artist his works range from traditional to abstract. He works in watercolor, oil, gouache, pastel and mixed media. He finds pleasure in being able to enter his studio and know he has the freedom to create without having thirty plus students looking over his shoulder. At the same time he draws energy from the memory of his former students.

Mac has won local and state awards with his watercolors, oils, and sculptures. He has had one man shows at Brigham Young University, Weber State University, Salt Lake Community College, Eccles Community Art Center - Ogden, Utah, Myra Powell Art Gallery - Ogden, Utah, Layton Utah Heritage Museum, Bountiful-Davis Art Center, and Gallery at the Station - Ogden, Utah. He is also a charter member of an artist cooperative, Gallery 25, Ogden, Utah. He has completed a three-month experience painting full-time at the Scottsdale, Arizona Celebration of Art, along with 100 other artists from throughout the United States.

Mac is now having the time of his life as a practicing artist!
