Biography


Stephen Santore has been driven to create ever since he can remember. He vividly recalls his kinship with kindergarten crafts, using bright wax crayons, delicious white paste and those really dull and hard to control scissors.

Stephen was then accepted into Rhode Island School of Design, where he received a BFA in illustration, with significant course work in product design.
