A passion cultivated from a young age.
When Steve was eight his mother saw potential in his early sketches and enrolled him in private art lessons. He went on to earn a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Masters in Business Administration. During his career, he traveled throughout the U.S., Europe and Japan; living in Puerto Rico for three years. Even though he turned to art as a means of fueling his creativity throughout his life, it wasn’t until he retired and joined the en plein air painting group; Vistas and Vineyards, that he began painting weekly.
