Stephen Fry sold his first painting at the age of 15 and went on to the prestigious California Institute of Arts on a full scholarship. Many of his low country scenes are on century old wood taken from aging textile mills as they are being torn down. His painting of General Peter Horry is showcased in the Horry Museum of South Carolina. His art is also in Paul Newman's collection. Sadly, cancer took Stephen Fry’s life in the summer of 2018.
