Graeme Stevenson is an artist, pilot, parrot breeder and TV show producer/presenter of 'Put Some Colour in your World'.
When Graeme was five he was asked what he would like to be when he grew up, his response was, I would like to be an Artist.
In 1988 he was commissioned to produce all of the paintings for the book 'The Atlas of Parrots', one of the largest editions of its size in the world. This book is displayed in the New York, Paris and London Natural History Museums.
In 2000 he was voted by 'U.S Art' as one of the 25 Most Influential Artists to watch for in the coming decades. He was written up in International Artist as a 'Master Artist' for his time.
In 2003, Graeme completed two shows in the U.S, both of them designed to help other people in our society. The Highlight of the show was the acquisition of three paintings by President Bill Clinton. Graeme has donated much of his work to assist wildlife and charities over the years.
In 2011, realising that the techniques and knowledge of great artists are often lost once the artist has passed on, Graeme concluded that a television show that captures artists in their studios, creating their pieces, could be utilised as a digital library.
And so, the TV show 'Put Some Colour In Your Life' was born.
For the first year Colour In Your Life aired on paid television and in 2012, the show was nominated for two Logie awards, one being for 'Best Host', and the other 'Best Light Entertainment Program'.
Put Some Colour In Your Life began in the small town of Murwillumbah, just south of the NSW/QLD border to showcase this incredibly artistic region, and has now spread to encompass the arts and artists of Australia, and the world.
It is Graeme's hope that Colour In Your Life will eventually travel to countries all over the world, filming artists in their studios and preserving that knowledge and craft for future generations.
