Steve grew up in the Midwest. He lived in Indiana most of his adult life. He always had an artistic side, but decided to not pursue it after the death of his father. He chose to honor his father's profession and became a construction contractor. He developed a knowledge and respect of raw materials and saw the creative process there.
He retired and moved to Colorado. He had free time and few constraints. His interests in art, discarded materials and the current "disposable economy" brought him to the art form he creates now. He enjoys sharing both his art and this philosophy.
