A native of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Stephan Scrak was a frequent visitor to Montreal before moving there in 1986. Drawing inspiration from the vibrant city he rediscovered his love of painting and explored his unusual style. Stephan yearned for a place where he could paint full time, a visit to the Pontiac was all it took. Stephan now lives and paints in a small cottage a stone's throw from the Ottawa River in the historic village of Portage du Fort, gaining new inspiration from its quiet shores and stone buildings. He welcomes visitors to his home which is also his studio, displaying his newer works and his collection of mid-century modern furnishings and accessories. His studio, Harbour Square, is open weekends in the summer, 16 rue Main.
