Esem

Welcome to Esem Studio and Esem Gallery.

My name is Stephen Michael Barnes – professionally I go by the name Stephen Michael, or simply, esem.
The purpose of my website esem.studio is to present the two segments of my world. The first segment “Gallery” is a portfolio of work that I do as an oil painter. The second segment “Studio” is a description of the work that I do professionally as a content creator for websites and social media. It also contains a portfolio, as well as learning materials.

Someone once said that there are painters who think and thinkers who paint. I am both.
