Steve's training as an artist began in early childhood with the influence of his oldest brother, a gifted artist and published cartoonist. His influence coupled with later school field trips to the Getty Museum would be the beginning of Steve's love of the Impressionist works.  Some influences include Turner, Monet, and Van Gogh.
Recently his focus has been on light and atmosphere, drawing  inspiration from his life as a fisherman and the many awe inspiring experiences on the California Coast.
