SOUTH HAVEN, MI (WHTC) - A West Michigan artist whose work was the official poster print for Holland’s annual signature event twice has died.

Services are this evening in South Haven for Stephen French, who passed away at his home this past Saturday at the age of 60. His official Tulip Time Festival poster creations of a bed of tulips with Big Red in the background in 1999, and in front of the DeZwaan Windmill the following year, were painted with them being displayed side-by-side in mind. Mr. French also created the first-ever official poster for Fennville’s Goose Festival in 1999, and was known for his outdoor and wildlife paintings.
