remembers the first picture he drew - a jalopy at age seven. As he
filled the blank sheet of paper with the bent fenders, torn
convertible top and steam erupting from the radiator cap he began
an artist’s journey that continues to this day.
Mostly self taught Steve looks for creative ways to express
the drama and beauty he sees around him. He works
in pen and ink, acrylics, charcoal, pencil and colored markers.
His subjects include homes and buildings, portraits, equestrian
art and pets, scenic views and caricatures.
While working in advertising and industrial design he
widened his expertise to include computer Steve studied art and
design while a theater major at Rutgers University, the University
of Miami and Catholic University. Many of his designs found
expression as theatrical costumes and sets, which he also built.
He has continued his art education at the Maine College of
Art and the Heartwood College of Art. On trips, rather than using
a camera, he prefers to capture the memories on a sketch pad.
Important visual influences in Steve’s art embrace the
freedom of the Impressionists, the dramatic fantasies of Boris
Vallejo, the wholesome fun of Norman Rockwell, the romantic danger
of Howard Pyle, the daring architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, the
fluid lines of Al Hirschfeld’s Broadway caricatures and the
glamorous spectacle of the old MGM musicals.
