A native to the California Bay Area, Steven had the fortune to start painting professionally at the early age of 16. Inspired by his love of light and landscape, he has painted the San Francisco Bay Area and the California Central Coast, as well as spending time traveling in Europe. Everywhere, he has worked on capturing the clear colors and strong brushstrokes that distinguish his work.
Steven studies with the California Academy of Painters, and master painters Brigitte Curt and Jim Smyth. He also takes inspiration from the landscapes of the California Impressionists and the French Barbizon School, which have heavily inspired his work.
