Steve is an award-winning artist who received a San Jose State design degree with a minor in his real passion, art.
He was a designer and occasional painter until 2009, when much to his joy, those roles reversed.

Compelling vistas of the Salinas Valley and Central California Coast provide numerous subjects for his paintings.
He looks for interesting scenes with distinctive lighting, such as light-dappled cattle relaxing under trees or a late day's warm sunlight creating long, cool shadows. 
  He was an active volunteer with the Monterey Bay Plein Air Astion for three years, and is now an active volunteer with the Salinas Valley Art Association.
