Born in Amarillo Texas, Seattle artist Stephen McClelland received a BFA from Indiana University in 1968 and an MFA from the University of Washington in 1975. He has served as a guest instructor at the University of Washington, Cornish Institute, and other local colleges and universities. McClelland uses playful figures, geometric shapes, and vibrant colors to bring life and humor to his large abstract paintings and drawings. His paintings can be found in many Northwest corporate and public collections, including Microsoft, Safeco, Rainier Bank, and the City of Seattle.

McClelland's lively painting, The Statuary in Certaldo, appears in the Allen Center at the base of the Silverberg Landing.
