"My artistic goals are to use imaginative and creative efforts to intensify sensations of the real world. I am currently working on a series of birds in special settings. I enjoyed frequently visiting the National Aviary while in Pennsylvania. I love bird shapes, colors, patterns and attitudes."
Steve decided to pursue art as a child after noting the pleasure his father experienced as a "Sunday Painter".
He earned a design degree from San Jose State (BSID) along with a minor in art. He pursued painting as a hobby until retiring from design in 2009. He appreciates his wife's unwavering support, who tolerated paint on clothes and carpets for many years, before he had an art studio of his own.
Commission inquiries accepted. Reproductions are available in the gallery.
